DATE: May 11, 2015

CASE: Devon Nelson

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Kristen Ilharreguy, Targeting Armed Recidivist Gangsters Enforcement Team (TARGET)

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that the Honorable Curtis Fiorini sentenced Devon Nelson to 10 years and 4 months in prison.  On April 2, 2015, a jury convicted Nelson, a validated Oak Park Blood gang member, of possession of ammunition. 

On July 4, 2014, multiple shots were fired by multiple shooters at the intersection of El Camino and Howe Avenue.  An unidentified victim fled the scene after being shot at and physically assaulted.  A vehicle matching the description of one of the possible shooters was located close to the crime scene.  Nelson was the right front passenger in that vehicle. When an officer approached the car, Nelson and an unidentified driver fled on foot. When Nelson fled, he discarded a 9mm magazine with six live rounds in it. Nelson was caught within minutes of fleeing.

At the time of this offense, Nelson was on felony probation for committing an assault with a firearm for the benefit of a criminal street gang.
