A convicted killer who was found with a firearm in his vehicle — in which a 7-year-old child was riding — pleaded no contest Monday to felony possession and was sentenced to 32 months in prison.
Samuel Boyd, 27, of Pomona, earlier served time in prison for the January 2010 killings of two teenage boys at Ted Greene Park in Pomona.
Described by Pomona police as a documented gang member, Boyd has remained jailed since his arrest shortly after a traffic stop in the 300 block of Fuego Avenue on the evening of Feb. 29.
The 7-year-old passenger was released to a legal guardian, Pomona police said.
Boyd pleaded no contest in 2011 to one count of voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to three years in state prison in connection with the killings of Timmy Moore, 17, and Prithesh Dunn, 15.
Boyd was one of six young men — all under 18 but charged as adults — who pleaded to voluntary manslaughter in the shootings. Police said the shooter, Denzel Isaiah Omar — who was 15 years old at the time — fired 13 rounds with a .22-caliber rifle after a member of a rival gang waved a gun above his head, the Whittier Daily News reported.
