PICO RIVERA – A gang member received a sentenced of 50 years to life in prison Friday for shooting a 17-year-old Pico Rivera boy in 2009, authorities said.

The men confronted Roche at the entrance to an alley in the 6400 block of Rosemead Boulevard in Pico Rivera and asked him what gang he was affiliated with, a homicide detective testified during court proceeding.

When the teen replied that he was not in a gang, Ortega fired twice, killing Roche, officials said.

Flores is due back in Norwalk Superior Court to be sentenced for his role in the killing March 4, court officials said.
