San Bernardino gang member sentenced to 40 years to life for murder

Lori Fowler (Inland Valley Daily Bulletin) | October 19, 2012

A San Bernardino gang member was sentenced to 40 years to life in state prison this week for fatally shooting another man during a gang-related fight earlier this year.

In September, 26-year-old Anthony Phillips was convicted of second degree murder and gun use causing death after an incident involving Maurice Major, 29, of Riverside, at a party on May 27 in San Bernardino.

The jury also found special allegations of discharging a firearm, which caused great bodily injury and a gang enhancement to be true.

Phillips was sentenced on Monday inside San Bernardino Superior Courthouse.

Deputy District Attorney David Tulcan said the shooting stemmed from a “turf beef.”

Major was found in the front yard of a home in the 1200 block of North Sierra Way with several gunshot wounds. He later died at a hospital.

Major’s death was the city’s 10th homicide of the month. There were 12 reported homicides in May – five in one week.

The spate of May violence prompted memories of the 1990s, when gang violence peaked in the area.
