LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Two gang members have been found guilty of killing five people at a homeless encampment near Los Angeles. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office says a jury found David Ponce and Max Rafael guilty of five counts of murder and a kidnapping charge on Friday. Prosecutors say Ponce and Rafael fatally shot three men and two women living at a homeless encampment near a freeway off-ramp in Long Beach. Police said the motive was a feud over drug debts between Ponce and a victim, Lorenzo Villicana.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - One of the world's few surviving "comfort women" attended a dedication in San Francisco Friday to her and thousands of other Asian women forced into brothels for Japanese soldiers in the 1930s and 1940s. The statue is the latest of dozens of memorials erected around the world for women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese army, which called them "comfort women." "At the end, we will have a memorial in Tokyo," vowed Yongsoo Lee, 89, who had been abducted by the Japanese army in Korea at 15.

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A California man has been sentenced to eight consecutive life terms for killing his hairstylist ex-wife and seven others in a shooting at a salon in 2011. A Orange County Superior Court judge handed down the punishment Friday for 47-year-old Scott Dekraai. He pleaded guilty in 2014, but his sentencing was delayed by a long-running scandal over the county's use of jailhouse snitches.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man shot by a police officer after a confrontation outside of a California convenience store has died.
