Brothers Found Guilty Of Murder In 2010 Sacramento Barbershop Shooting

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Two brothers were convicted on all charges related to a deadly 2010 barbershop shooting, while two other suspects were found guilty on different charges.

Lonnie and Louis Mitchell were both found guilty of first-degree murderin the Fly Cuts & Styles shooting, while James Carney was convicted of a voluntary manslaughter charge. Larry Jones was found guilty on a misdemeanor charge.

Sentencing for the four is set for Sept. 19.

Prosecutors say in 2010, rival gang members started shooting at a crowded South Sacramento barbershop. Six people were originally arrested for the December 2010 shootout at Fly Cuts & Styles that killed two people.

The gun battle, police say, pitted rival gang members the Mitchell brothers against Carney and Jones.

Monique Nelson, 30, had just strapped her child into his car seat and attempted to shield him when the shooting broke out.  She was shot in the chest. Marvion Barksdale, 20, was killed inside the barbershop.
