An Albuquerque man has been sentenced to life in prison for a deadly shooting at a homecoming party that took place in 2019.
Isaiah Garcia was found guilty of first-degree murder for killing 17-year-old Sean Marquis outside a home in the Eubank and Montgomery area.
The state claims that Garcia was actually trying to shoot someone else, but the bullet ricocheted off the ground and killed Marquis.
The judge sentenced Garcia to life plus two and a half years in prison for firing bullets from a handgun at a party attended by teenagers aged between 15 to 19 years.
Garcia is also set to stand trial this year for a separate shooting, the 2019 murder of Kayla Campos, who was playing Pokemon go at a Northeast Albuquerque park when she was killed.
The shooting at the high school party was shocking not just to the judge but also to the community.
