Brian Day (San Gabriel Valley Tribune) | July 20, 2012

A Whittier gang member received his sentence Friday for the fatal 2009 shooting of a father of five in Uptown Whittier, officials said.

Brandon Valdez, a 26-year-old documented member of the Whittier Varrio Locos street gang, will spend 50 years to life in state prison for the May 16, 2009, slaying of 27-year-old Daniel “Danny Boy” Quijada outside his home in the 6300 block of Milton Avenue, Norwalk Superior Court officials said.

A jury convicted Valdez in January of first-degree murder, along with the special allegation that the crime was carried out in connection with a criminal street gang, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials.

Quijada had four children, and his wife was seven months pregnant with their fifth child at the time of the shooting.
