September 29, 2017 - Patrick Zamora and Joseph Sanchez both pled guilty to second degree murder, with a firearm enhancement, and conspiracy to commit shooting at or from a motor vehicle with great bodily harm for their role in the May 2016 drive by shooting death of Aliyah Garcia. The counts will run concurrent. The third shooter, Carlos Alires, plead guilty to second degree murder earlier this month. Carlos is a juvenile and will have a hearing to determine if he will be sentenced as an adult.  Zamora and Sanchez are both adults and face up to 16 years in DOC. Zamora's sentencing will be put off until after his federal case is resolved. Sanchez is set for sentencing on November 8, 2017.
