According to court testimony, Isidoro-Ausencio was looking to get even after a beating at the hands of rival gang members. He and Delgado didn't find the attackers but shot the victims instead, thinking they were gang members.
Jurors also found true allegations Isidoro-Ausencio committed the murders for the benefit of the Sureno gang, he purposefully discharged a firearm and did so from a vehicle with the intent to kill. Delgado was also convicted of the latter charge. The jury did not reach verdicts on gang and the firearm enhancements for him.
