YAKIMA, Wash. - Four gang members are headed to prison for the rest of their lives for a drive-by shooting last year.

A Yakima judge sentenced 33-year-old Armando Lopez to life in prison without parole as a three-strikes offender.
 
Three other men convicted of assault - 30-year-old Jose Jesus Mancilla, 22-year-old Nicholas Jacob James, and 20-year-old Jaime Lopez - were also convicted of weapons enhancements that add up to minimum sentences of more than 100 years in prison.
 
Yakima County Sheriffs Deputies say no one was injured in the shooting back in March of 2011, but the home was the target of several shootings. The following month, 17 year old Diane Lopez was shot and killed when she answered a knock at the door at the same home. Deputies say four people wearing bandanas over their faces shot her.
