2 suspected gang members ordered to stand trial for murder

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two suspected gang members accused in shootings last year that left a man dead and a woman wounded must stand trial on murder and other charges, a judge ruled Thursday.

Following a preliminary hearing that lasted parts of four days, Judge Michael Smyth ruled that enough evidence was presented for 21-year-old Laquan Antione Jordan and 19-year-old Darius Peete be tried in the death last Oct. 2 of Aaron Scott Robinson.

The 29-year-old victim was discovered inside his first-floor apartment on 54th Street in City Heights after officers responded to reports of a woman being shot on the third floor just before 4 a.m.

Joselyn Yancey testified that she, her brother and some friends had attended a party in an apartment on the third floor after drinking and dancing at a downtown nightclub.

As they left the apartment, she said three men yelled out gang slogans and jumped her brother.

During the ensuing melee, Angela Traylor, the girlfriend of Yancey's brother, was shot in the leg, allegedly by Jordan.

Both Jordan and Peete are charged in Robinson's death. According to court testimony, Robinson's killing preceded the shooting upstairs by one minute.

Deandre Grey and Michael Dunbar face misdemeanor assault charges and gang allegations in connection with the upstairs fight, Deputy District Attorney Melissa Diaz said.

A Superior Court arraignment was set for Oct. 6.
