YAKIMA, Wash. -- A man convicted of shooting an killing a 15-year-old was sentenced to 94 years in prison. Erik Ramos Carrasco, 19, was found guilty of 2nd degree murder earlier this month.
Judge Michael McCarthy handed down the sentence Friday. It includes 25 years of firearm enhancements and eight years for gang aggravators.
Prosecutors said this is higher than the standard sentencing range of 68-84 years.
Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tamara Hanlon asked for a 100-year sentence.
Carrasco was found guilty for 2nd degree murder, four counts of 1st degree assault and one count of 2nd degree unlawful possession of a firearm
Prosecutors said the jury found that he was armed with a firearm during the murder and assaults. They also found there were two aggravating gang factors on each count.
Investigators said Carrasco shot multiple times at a car that had five rival gang members inside back in 2010. A 15-year-old was shot in the head and died at a Seattle Hospital. A second man was also shot.
