Teen Convicted of Double Murder, Firing at Occupied Vehicle

DATE:  December 18, 2015

CASE:  Ezekiel Delgado

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Sheri Greco, Homicide Unit

Eighteen-year-old Ezekiel Delgado was convicted by jury of two counts of first-degree murder, and allegations he personally discharged a firearm causing death on both murder counts and the special circumstance allegation that he committed multiple murders were found true.  Delgado was also convicted of discharging a firearm into an occupied motor vehicle and personally discharging a firearm causing death.

On April 10, 2014, Deshawne Cannon and Gina Elarms drove to the Northwood Apartments on Howe Avenue. Delgado was seeking to purchase marijuana from Mr. Cannon. When they arrived at the complex, Delgado approached the vehicle and shot Mr. Cannon multiple times in the back. He then shot Ms. Elarms multiple times in the back because she had seen his face and would be able to identify him.  Both victims died from gunshot wounds. 

Delgado faces a potential maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.  Sentencing is set for February 26, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 25 before the Honorable Robert Twiss.
