RENO, Nev. (AP) — A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to up to 40 years in prison for killing an innocent bystander and injuring another in a barrage of gunfire during a shootout with a rival gang at a Reno gas station.

Kamahri Berreman of Reno, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder with the use of deadly weapon, will be eligible for parole after 15 years, the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement Friday.

Prosecutors arguing for life in prison described the March 2022 attack as a “deadly ambush” in retaliation for a shooting that night at a house party.

Deputy District Attorney Jeff Hoppe said in Friday’s statement that Berreman admitted he “emptied his gun” as he and two fellow gang members started shooting at rivals parked at a convenience store gas pump.

Elizaer Obed, 28, was struck and killed by a bullet. The other bystander, a woman, was shot in the shoulder but recovered at a hospital, the DA’s office said.

Police arrested Berreman the day after the shooting. Prosecutors said he supplied automatic firearms to fellow gang members in an ongoing feud and retaliatory shootings.
