Imperial Valley Press - - LOCAL & REGION -

Au­thor­i­ties say a man was con­victed in the drive-by shoot­ing death of an 8-yearold boy in Pomona.

The Los An­ge­les Times re­ports that the Los An­ge­les dis­trict at­tor­ney’s of­fice says a jury on Wed­nes­day found 36-yearold Sengchan Houl guilty of one count of first-de­gree mur­der, two counts each of shoot­ing at an oc­cu­pied dwelling and neg­li­gent dis­charge of a firearm, and one count of shoot­ing from a mo­tor ve­hi­cle.

Houl is sched­uled to be sen­tenced next month, when he faces a max­i­mum sen­tence of life in prison with­out the pos­si­bil­ity of pa­role.

In Fe­bru­ary 2017, Houl was in a car when he opened fire on a home and fa­tally struck 8-year-old Jonah Hwang in the head.
