South Sacramento Gang-Banger Convicted of Murder, Could Face 100 Years to Life



A South Sacramento gang banger was convicted in a jury trial that concluded today for a murder that happened almost two years ago to the day.  

Bryan Thomas, 25, a member of the South Sacramento street gang known as Zilla, was found guilty of the March 22, 2014 murder of a rival gang member Davon Brown. The victim was killed at a party hosted by a friend where he encountered Thomas.

Thomas and his friends asked the victim where he was from, a question seen as a challenge in the gang culture. The victim denied any gang affiliation but was a member of the street gang known as Starz.  

During the party, Thomas and his friends confronted and told Brown he looked like he was from the south Sacramento street gang Starz. Thomas fired several shots at the victim, killing him.

The jury also found true gun and gang allegations, and as three striker, Thomas faces a potential sentence of 100 years to life in prison. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Kari Reeve and sentencing is set for April 21, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 38 before Judge Sharon Lueras.
