Two men have been sentenced to life in prison in an October 2016 shooting outside an Arden Way nightclub that killed a taco truck worker and injured three other people.
According to a news release from the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, Julian Garcia and German Zamora-Canada got in a fight with three others after a concert at the La Nueva Tropicana nightclub on Oct. 9, 2016. Garcia and Zamora-Canada opened fire and shot the three, who survived but suffered major injuries. Cesar Aleman-Luna, who operated the food truck outside the club, was struck five times and died.
Garcia and Zamora-Canada were convicted Sept. 17 of murder and attempted murder. Garcia was sentenced Friday to 149 years to life for first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm, the release said. Zamora-Canada was sentenced to 99 years to life for second-degree murder, attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The DA’s office said Garcia had previously been convicted of assault with a firearm in 2010, while Zamora had been convicted of a robbery in 2012. Both were sentenced in accordance with California’s “three-strikes” law.
