Teens imprisoned 18 years for attempted murder
October 23, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Two Sureño gangmembers accused of firing several shots at a rival in Redwood City who previously beat one’s friend were each sentenced to 18 years in prison for attempted murder.

Juan Garcia-Mungia, 20, of East Palo Alto, and Saul Vallejo, 16, of Redwood City, each pleaded no contest in September. A 16-year-old Redwood City boy arrested with the pair was not charged in the June 1, 2012, shooting.

Vallejo and the teen reportedly went to Sequoia Station in Redwood City that day to meet Garcia-Mungia who worked at Panda Express. The three, who prosecutors say were all Sureño gangmembers, drove around Redwood City until they saw a Norteño who had previously assaulted the 16-year-old standing with a friend near Lathrop and Maple streets.

Garcia-Mungia reportedly stopped the car 10 feet from the crowd and Vallejo, seated in the back, pushed the passenger seat forward and leaned out the window to fire multiple times. Witnesses placed the number of shots between three and seven.

No one was hit by the shots and the suspects fled.

The following day, Redwood City police arrested the pair using a license plate number of the suspected vehicle to track them to a residence in the 200 block of Euclid Avenue in East Palo Alto. Police reported finding the firearm and said the three suspects admitted participating in the shooting.

Garcia-Mungia and Vallejo have been in custody without bail since their arrest and each accumulated 583 days credit against their respective sentences.
