MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Three Memphis men prosecutors accused of violent gang activity have been convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Neal Oldham called the men “dangerous and brazen gang members who fire guns indiscriminately.” 22-year-old Brashard “Hotboy” Gibbs; 24-year-old Deredious Otis; and Carlos Key, 30, were convicted Friday in the 2013 killing of Robbie Webb at a car wash.

The men were also convicted of attempting to kill two other people who were shot in the same incident.

Gibbs was also convicted on multiple counts of attempted murder and employing a firearm in another 2013 shooting incident on Interstate 240. They jury found Key and Otis not guilty in that incident.

A dozen law enforcement officers were present as the verdict was read.
