Gang members are behind the 2011 "massacre" of three people, two of them teenagers, at a northern California warehouse, according to prosecutors.
Paul Arthur Stevenson, 22, of Oakland, Anthony Alvin Perry II, 23, of Oakland, and Aaron Isaiah Stewart, 21, of Fairfield, were the members of the "Mob Squad" that fired at least 19 shots at seven people seated inside an SUV parked outside a tattoo party, according to the Hayward Daily Review.
Shanice Kiel, 19, of San Francisco, Leneasha Northington, 16, of San Leandro, and Joshua Alford, 23, of Oakland, all died, the newspaper reported.
Opening statements in the trial began Monday.
The men left the parking lot near the car looking like a "battlefield" after deciding that Alford, who was allegedly in another gang, rubbed them the wrong way at a party.
A fourth shooter has exchanged a guilty plea and testimony against the other three for a lighter sentence, the newspaper reported.
