SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) - A jury has found three purported gang members guilty of fatally shooting three people outside a party in San Leandro in 2011.

Alameda County prosecutor Jimmie Wilson says the defendants surrounded an SUV carrying seven people and opened fire in an attempt to kill a rival gang member who was riding inside.

Authorities said 21-year-old Aaron Stewart, 23-year-old Anthony Perry and 22-year-old Paul Stevenson III were convicted on Thursday of three counts of murder and four counts of attempted murder for the shooting.

The all face the possibility of receiving life in prison without parole when they are sentenced July 10.

Slain were 16-year-old Leneasha Northington, 23-year-old Joshua Alford and 19-year-old Shanice Kiel.

According to testimony, Alford was the target of the shooting because he was in a rival gang.
