A 25-year-old Latino gang member convicted in the racially motivated gang murder of a black Canoga Park bowling alley employee has been sentenced to life in prison without parole. Martin Sotelo, a member of the Canoga Park Alabama gang, was sentenced Thursday for the fatal drive-by shooting of James Shamp. Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Martin Herscovitz also ordered Sotelo to pay $15,916 in restitution for the burial of his victim and mental health costs of the victim's family. A jury in April found Sotelo guilty of first-degree murder with two special circumstance allegations, murder because of the victim's race and murder in a drive-by shooting.

"We thought we would call it Pork Barrel Lanes," City Manager Alan Grindstaff said, adding that the $500,000 being spent on the project might have been a more appropriate gift to the city.
