LOS ANGELES – Three reputed “Rolling 30’s” gang members were charged today with three counts each of capital murder in connection with last year’s fatal shooting of three South Los Angeles residents, including two boys, the District Attorney’s office said today.

Deputy District Attorney Phil Glaviano with the Hardcore Gang Division said the three allegedly were looking for rival gang members when they shot up a neighborhood, firing more than 30 rounds from two AK-47 blankault rifles. The shootings occurred about 4:30p.m. on June 30, 2006 in the 1100 block of East 49th Street.

Fatally shot were David Marcial, 10; his 22-year-old uncle, Larry Marcial; and a neighbor, Luis Cervantes, 17. David’s brother, Sergio Marcial Jr., 12, was wounded and survived.

Charged in case No. BA321481 are Ryan T. Moore, 33 (dob 8-3-73) and Lawrence William Island Jr., 24 (dob 11-9-82). Moore and Island are scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center, Division 30. An arrest warrant was issued for a third defendant. LAPD investigated the case.

The three are charged with three counts each of murder, with the special circumstance of multiple murder and murder to further a gang, and one count each of attempted premeditated murder. A decision on whether to seek the death penalty will be made by prosecutors at a later date.

Glaviano said none of the victims was involved in gangs.

    THANK GOD THE JURORS HAD ENOUGH INTELLIGENCE TO FIND ‘KRICK” GUILTY. TOO BAD “ROCK” HAS TO SIT THROUGH ANOTHER TRIAL; JUST PROLONGING THE INEVITABLE. SICK THAT MERCERON GETS ONLY SEVEN YEARS FOR DRIVING THE GETAWAY CAR.
