A Chicago street gang member has been sentenced to life in prison for the fatal shooting of three teenagers when he opened fire on a rival gang member outside a high school
Martin Ybarra was charged with first-degree murder for the 2009 deaths of 13-year-old Johnny Edwards, 17-year-old Kendrick Pitts and 15-year-old Raheem Washington.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Cook County Circuit Judge Steve Goebel on Friday told Ybarra that it was impossible for him to be rehabilitated.
Six months before the slayings, Ybarra was acquitted of a 2005 fatal shooting that killed a 19-year-old man at the same intersection.
Ybarra's co-defendant in the 2009 shooting, Geovanni Lopez, was acquitted in a bench trial before Goebel in May.
