CASE:  David Eggman (Case #18FE000227)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Shelly McGill, Homicide Unit

David Eggman was convicted by a jury of the second-degree murder of Angelo Reyes, attempted murder, assault with a semi-automatic firearm, discharging a firearm at an occupied vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm.  The jury also found true allegations that Eggman personally used a firearm causing great bodily injury or death.

On December 16, 2017, Angelo Reyes went to a convenience store and ran into people he knew.  A verbal confrontation ensued and the other party called David Eggman and others to the scene for reinforcement.  Eggman punched Reyes, who then left and later went to a house where Eggman had gone.  After another verbal confrontation, Eggman produced a gun and started shooting.  Reyes was shot and killed.  Reyes’ brother was struck, but he survived.

An allegation that Eggman suffered a prior strike conviction for voluntary manslaughter will be determined at the sentencing hearing.

Eggman faces a maximum sentence of approximately 85 years to life in prison.  Sentencing is set for April 5, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 62 before the Honorable Michael Savage.
