A Superior Court judge sentenced a suspect in a four-year-old homicide case to a total of 68 years in prison.  Elizer Salcedo, now 29, was responsible for the April 28, 2001 shooting death of 33-year-old Leticia Ramirez, who was with a group of people at 24th and York streets.  The intended target was the victim’s brother.  The drive-by shooting was gang-related.

Salcedo was convicted of second degree murder, for which he was sentenced to 15 years to life; murder with a firearm, which carried a sentence of 25 years to life; and attempted homicide on bystanders, with a penalty of 28 years to life, for a total 68-year sentence.

Salcedo had been arrested the day of the shooting and had been in custody up to the time of his sentencing.
