Brandon Spencer, the man accused of shooting a rival gang member on campus last Halloween, was convicted of four counts of attempted murder on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times. Spencer could face life in prison.Halloween shooting · Members of the Los Angeles Fire Department place shooting victim Geno Hall into an ambulance Nov. 1, 2012 following the attack in Tutor Center Auditorium. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanTwenty-one-year-old Spencer shot twenty-two-year-old Geno Hall in October of 2012 amid a crowd of more than 100 people waiting in line to enter a Halloween party at the Ronald Tutor Campus Center Ballroom hosted by the Black Student Assembly. Prosecutors argued in court that Spencer committed the shooting in retaliation for a gunshot wound he suffered a year earlier. They said the shooting was further motivated by a fight between Spencer and Hall on Twitter.Police maintain that Spencer attempted to flee the scene, discarding his shirt in the process. Spencer was found near a USC parking lot half a mile from the shooting scene. Police recovered a black revolver they believed to be Spencer’s three hours after the shooting.Hall sustained four wounds and three other men were injured in the shooting. According to the L.A. Times, Hall testified that he still has a bullet lodged in his pelvis area and continues to suffer from back pain due to the incident.A USC Dept. of Public Safety officer testified that he saw Spencer lift the gun out of his waistband. The officer later identified Spencer out of the possible suspects detained due to his height, clothing and skin shade.Spencer’s attorney John Blanchard defended his client by saying that many partygoers were wearing clothing similar to Spencer’s. Furthermore, Blanchard noted that the DNA found on the gun was only a partial match, according to the L.A. Times.Blanchard told reporters that Spencer plans to appeal.
Sakhir, Bahrain | AFP | Sebastian Vettel marked his 200th Formula One race with a thrilling and brilliantly-judged victory for Ferrari in Sunday’s dramatic Bahrain Grand Prix.The four-time ex champion, on severely-worn tyres, came home narrowly ahead of Valtteri Bottas and the Finn’s Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in a nail-biting finish to an intriguing contest.French rookie Pierre Gasly took a stunning fourth place for the Honda-powered Toro Rosso team ahead of Kevin Magnussen of Haas.It was Vettel’s second win in as many races this season, the 49th of his career and extended his lead ahead of Hamilton in the drivers’ championship to 17 points after the Englishman delivered a dazzling drive from ninth on the grid to finish only six seconds adrift.Both have won four championships and, this season, are battling to secure an historic fifth title.“Wow!” screamed Vettel as he crossed the line. “These tyres were done – they were done for the last 10 laps.“I came on the radio to say everything was under control, but that was a lie! I thought Bottas would catch me and I just tried to keep it as clean as possible.”Bottas said: “We were on the harder compound and I knew there was a chance. I tried to catch him, but it was just not enough. Extremely disappointing.”Hamilton, who started ninth after being given a five-place penalty for a gearbox change, said he was satisfied. “I am happy,” he said. “It was damage limitation. I started ninth so third is not that bad…”But it was not all good news for Ferrari as Vettel’s team-mate Finn Kimi Raikkonen failed to finish after colliding with a mechanic at a pit stop.The mechanic was taken to the circuit medical centre with a suspected broken leg.Both the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo also retired after the opening laps.Nico Hulkenberg was sixth for Renault ahead of Fernando Alonso and his McLaren team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne.Marcus Ericsson grabbed two points for Sauber by finishing ninth ahead of Esteban Ocon, who was 10th for Force India. – luck ended –The race began with temperatures falling from 29 and 35 degrees Celsius respectively for air and track.Vettel made a clean start and Bottas swept past Raikkonen to split the Ferraris on the opening lap.This lifted spirits for Mercedes, but Hamilton, down in ninth to resist a charging lunge by Verstappen at the start of lap two.From 15th on the grid, the Red Bull driver had reached the top ten, but his luck ended when he banged wheels with Hamilton and punctured his left rear tyre.As the Dutchman idled back to the pits, his Red Bull team-mate Ricciardo slowed and stopped at the side of the track. A Virtual Safety Car was deployed.Verstappen pitted and re-joined, but his race was over when, like Ricciardo, he stopped and retired.This left Hamilton to make up places and after slipping to 10th he regained ninth and then passed Alonso, Hulkenberg and Ocon in one move.Vettel pitted after 19 laps, passing the lead to Bottas, and rejoining fourth. Two laps later, Raikkonen also came in for a Ferrari pit-stop that elevated Hamilton to second.Bottas finally pitted after 21 laps, in a 3.8 seconds stop for medium tyres that were expected to see him complete the race – while both Ferrari ran on softs.In the lead, Hamilton was 5.3 seconds clear of Vettel after 22 laps, an advantage trimmed to half a second by lap 25 with Bottas five seconds adrift in third.A frustrated Vettel finally burst past the defensive Hamilton, on his original tyres, to re-gain the lead on lap 26. Hamilton then pitted, also for mediums, which left both Mercedes on a one-stop strategy and Ferrari requiring another stop each.With further stops required, Ferrari’s problems were compounded after 36 laps when Raikkonen came in and inadvertently ran over a mechanic as he pulled away.It was his second unsafe release of the weekend and his third in a race.Unaffected, Vettel pushed to make the most of an emergency one-stop strategy, resisting Bottas all the way to the flag.Share on: WhatsApp
