NAMPA, Idaho - Two southwest Idaho gang members have pleaded guilty to various charges following a shootout that injured a 10-year-old girl struck by a stray bullet.
KTVB-TV reports that 21-year-old Ezri Garcia on Wednesday pleaded guilty to aggravated battery with intent to inflict great bodily injury and felony riot, with a gang sentencing enhancement.
Nineteen-year-old Mario Garza pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a weapons enhancement and felony riot with a gang enhancement.
The shooting occurred on June 29 in Nampa as families gathered to watch a fireworks show as part of a festival.
The 10-year-old was struck in the shoulder, and surgeons were unable to remove the bullet due to possible nerve damage.
