Five men convicted of a series of retaliatory shootings in March 2010 that killed five and injured another nine people in Southeast Washington were handed lengthy prison terms Tuesday, with three of the men sentenced to life in prison with no opportunity for release.
A D.C. jury on Monday found five men guilty of murder in a series of horrific, retaliatory shootings that left five people dead and injured nine others in 2010 along South Capitol Street in Southeast.
A spree of violent attacks in Southeast that left five dead and nine others wounded was all triggered when a piece of "costume jewelry" went missing, prosecutors said Tuesday during opening statements in the trial of the men charged in the shootings.
The trial is set to begin Tuesday morning for five men accused in a series of violent attacks in D.C. that culminated in the so-called South Capitol Street massacre that left three dead and six others injured.
“There have been enough lives lost already,’ said Bost’s attorney, Todd Baldwin.
