Walla Walla gang member, 19, given life sentence

WALLA WALLA -- A 19-year-old man is headed to prison for the rest of his life for a fatal gang shooting in Walla Walla.
Benito Gomez was sentenced to 114 years Tuesday on his murder and assault convictions in a shooting last year that killed 20-year-old Julio Cesar Martinez.
The Union-Bulletin reports Gomez turned down a plea deal before the trial that would have resulted in a sentence of less than 30 years.
