Sentencing rescheduled for man who pleaded guilty in fatal gang rival shooting

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Sentencing was rescheduled Thursday to Aug. 27 for a man who admitted involvement in the fatal shooting of a gang rival outside a Lincoln Park liquor store in 2008.

Martrell Johnson, 21, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the Oct. 20, 2008, death of 20-year-old Joel Carmichael outside Dr. J's liquor store. The shooting was gang-related, according to the prosecution.

Johnson was arrested within months of the slaying, along with three co-defendants, including his older brother.

Martray Johnson, Michael Anthony Allen and Marquise Grady have all been convicted and sentenced for their roles in the shooting. Martrell and Allen were both juveniles at the time of the shooting but were prosecuted as adults.

Authorities said all four defendants were involved in the planning and coordination of the slaying but only Grady and Martrell fired weapons.
