UPDATE, NOV. 14, 5:42 P.M.: A jury today agreed Prospero Guadarrama's baby face is attached to a cold-blooded killer.

Now 21, he was convicted of joining other Santa Ana street gang members as a 16-year-old in the execution-style murders of a 14- and 15-year-old while leaving a 16-year-old shot in a coma.

Specifically, Guadarrama was found guilty of two felony counts of special circumstances murder for the benefit of a criminal street gang, one felony count of attempted murder, and one felony count of street terrorism. Sentencing enhancements for criminal street gang activity and the vicarious discharge of a firearm as a gang member causing death and bodily injury were found true.

He could get life in state prison without the possibility of parole at his Dec. 16 sentencing in Santa Ana.

ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 9, 9:26 A.M.:
Look at Prospero Guadarrama: Does that baby face look like it could be attached to a cold-blooded killer?

Prosecutors say it does. Then 16, Guadarrama and fellow members of a Santa Ana street gang hunted for rivals eight days before Christmas in 2006 and ultimately murdered--with execution-style headshots--a 14- and 15-year-old, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA). A 16-year-old shot in the stomach fell into a coma.

Today, opening statements are scheduled to heard in now-21-year-old Guadarrama's Santa Ana murder trail. Conviction could bring life in state prison without the possibility of parole.

On Dec. 17, 2006, Guadarrama is accused of going on the murder ride with Juan Roldan, Norberto Hernandez, Oiram Ayala and Angel Garcia. The driver was Marco Perez. The cargo included two firearms.

They stopped in a rival gang neighborhood and eventually before 14-year-old Angel Secundino, 15-year-old Gabriel Perez and 16-year-old Fernando Garcia. Secundino and Gabriel Perez took the head shots. Garcia was the one left in a coma, and he has undergone seven surgeries since. Their attackers split.

The five gang members Guadarrama was said to be in the car with have all been convicted for the street murders and attempted murder, and three of them were also part of a gang-related shooting two days earlier. On Dec. 15, 2006, Ayala, Hernandez, and Roldan were involved in an exchange of gunfire with a group of gang rivals. Gumaro Rojas, then a 47-year-old street vendor selling corn on the cob from a cart, took a shot to his back in the crossfire. The bullet penetrated his spinal cord, and he remains paralyzed from the waist down to this day.

Juan Roldan got life in February for the shootings Guadarrama is now on trial for participating in.
Roldan, 21, who was a juvenile at the time of the crime and prosecuted as an adult, was convicted by a jury on Sept. 30, 2010, of two felony counts of special circumstances murder for committing multiple murders for the benefit of a criminal street gang, one felony count of attempted murder, two felony counts of street terrorism, one felony count of assault with a firearm, and sentencing enhancements for criminal street gang activity and the vicarious discharge of a firearm as a gang member causing death and bodily injury. He was sentenced Feb. 18 to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.

Hernandez, 26, was found guilty by a jury March 26, 2009, of the same charges as Roldan. He was sentenced June 5, 2009, to two life sentences in state prison without the possibility of parole plus an additional 93 years to life.

Ayala, 22, who was a juvenile at the time of the crime and prosecuted as an adult, was found guilty by a jury Sept. 30, 2010, of the same charges as Roldan and was sentenced Oct. 22, 2010, to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.

Perez, 18, was found guilty by a jury June 25, 2009, of two felony counts of special circumstances murder for the benefit of a criminal street gang, one felony count of attempted murder, one felony count of street terrorism, and sentencing enhancements for criminal street gang activity and the vicarious discharge of a firearm as a gang member causing death and bodily injury. He was sentenced Oct. 23, 2009, to 50 years to life in state prison.

Garcia, 24, was convicted by a jury Jan. 26, 2009, of two felony counts of special circumstances murder for committing multiple murders for the benefit of a criminal street gang, one felony count of attempted murder, one felony count of street terrorism, and sentencing enhancements for criminal street gang activity and the vicarious discharge of a firearm as a gang member causing death and bodily injury. He was sentenced May 29, 2009, to two life sentences in state prison without the possibility of parole plus an additional 50 years to life.

Guadarrama faces the same charges today.

I think most gang members have identifying characteristics unique to their specific clique or gang. The Bloods, for instance, wear red bandanas, the Crips blue, allowing these gangs to "represent" their affiliation
