Laws, Life, and Legal Matters - Court Cases and Legal Information at - All Federal and State Appeals Court Cases in One Search: "defendant Vanegas was standing in front of his apartment building when a car pulled up. The driver was Adam Leon and the passenger was Fernando Castellanos. They were both members of the Clanton Street gang. Vanegas had been having a dispute with Leon's brother. Leon threatened Vanegas and challenged him to a fight. Then Castellanos said, 'Hey, I'll get down with you.' Castellanos opened the car door, produced a handgun, and fired three shots. Vanegas tried to flee, but Castellanos got out of the car, chased him, and shot him in the lower back.
At about 2:30 p.m. on August 24, 2007, police responded to a shooting in the area of Beverly Boulevard and Normandie Avenue. They found Castellanos's body on the ground in the middle of the intersection. He had been shot four times. The police also found Kwok Ng, who had sustained a superficial gunshot wound in the back.
Two witnesses, O.G. and R.R., had seen the shooting. They saw a man with a gun chasing after a group of people which included Castellanos. Castellanos fell behind and was unable to cross the street with the rest of the group when the light changed. He turned right and then tried to cross the street. The gunman shot him in the back. Castellanos fell in the street and the gunman started to leave, but then Castellanos moved his head. The gunman walked back over to Castellanos and shot him three to five more times in the back. O.G. and R.R. got a good look at the gunman's face. They both identified Vanegas as the gunman in a photo array, at a live lineup, at the preliminary hearing, and at trial."
