Izac McCloud, a 19-year-old black man, was convicted last month of two counts of second-degree murder and 46 counts of assault. On Oct. 7, McCloud was sentenced to the maximum term of 202 years to life in state prison, according to a press release from the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.
Officials said that McCloud and co-defendant Jonzel Stringer, a 22-year-old black man, were among a group of more than 400 people who attended a birthday party at the Lakewood Masonic Lodge on Jan. 19, 2008.
Stringer got into a fight inside the lodge, came outside, and told McCloud to shoot. Standing outside a window, McCloud fired a handgun 10 times at partygoers inside, the prosecution alleged.
