Chandler gang member sentenced in fatal shooting

PHOENIX — A Chandler street gang member has been sentenced to natural life
in prison plus 102 years for a 2006 drive-by shooting that killed a young woman.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 26-year-old Rodrigo Romero Jr. was sentenced
Friday.

He was convicted of first-degree murder and multiple other felonies two months
ago.

Prosecutors say Romero is a member of the Chandler Varrio Locos criminal street
gang.

They say Romero was involved in a shooting that targeted members of a rival
street gang on Dec. 2, 2006.

Authorities say six people were shot outside a Chandler home including
19-year-old Lindsay Key, a single mother who suffered a fatal wound to the head.

A county grand jury indicted Romero in December 2010.
