Chandler gang member sentenced in fatal shooting
PHOENIX -- A Chandler street gang member has been sentenced to natural life in prison plus 102 years for a 2006 drive-by shooting that killed a young woman.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 26-year-old Rodrigo Romero Jr. was sentenced Friday.
He was convicted of first-degree murder and multiple other felonies two months ago.
Prosecutors say Romero is a member of the Chandler Varrio Locos criminal street gang.
They say Romero was involved in a shooting that targeted members of a rival street gang on Dec. 2, 2006.
Authorities say six people were shot outside a Chandler home including 19-year-old Lindsay Key, a single mother who suffered a fatal wound to the head.
A county grand jury indicted Romero in December 2010.
