Defendant Convicted of Charges Stemming from Vehicle Shooting

DATE:  November 9, 2016

CASE:  Daevon Love (Case #15F06950)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Shelly McGill, Gangs & Hate Crimes Unit

Daevon Love was convicted by a jury of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, discharging a firearm at an inhabited vehicle, three counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.  The jury also found true allegations that Love personally used a firearm and committed crimes while out on bail.  The Court found in a separate proceeding that Love has a prior strike conviction.

On July 31, 2014, Love and his friends attacked a man and beat him.  On November 8, 2015, Love, while out on bail, was a passenger in a Buick. The Buick nearly collided with another car. When the occupants of the other car honked at the Buick, Love pulled out a firearm and shot at them. Neither the car nor the occupants were struck, but an unrelated individual who was walking to work suffered a gunshot wound to his neck. 

Love’s prior strike conviction is for battery with serious bodily injury.  He faces a maximum sentence of 56 years in prison.  Sentencing is set for January 20, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 39 before the Honorable James Arguelles.
