CASE: Alex Bruno
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Morgan Gire, Gangs & Hate Crimes Unit
The Honorable Marjorie Koller sentenced Alex Bruno to 61 years to life in prison. On June 26, 2015, a jury convicted Bruno of two counts of attempted murder, each with enhancements for causing great bodily injury and discharging a firearm causing great bodily injury.
In September 2012, Nick Stevenson was at a family birthday party at their south Sacramento home. Alex Bruno disliked the Stevenson family and went to the house to get his girlfriend, who was at the party. As Bruno and his girlfriend pulled away from the house in their car, Bruno fired shots through the rear window. Mr. Stevenson was struck in the abdomen, critically injuring him. A 16-year-old friend of the family was struck in the back and seriously injured as he turned to run away from the gunfire.
The car Bruno was driving was recovered a week later. The District Attorney’s Laboratory of Forensic Services matched broken glass found inside the door frame of the car to the glass left at the scene. Witnesses were initially reluctant to identity the shooter, but ultimately came forward to identify Bruno, who remained at large for several months before his arrest.
