SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 21-year-old man has been sentenced to six to 30 years in prison for killing three people during a botched drug robbery in a Salt Lake City suburb.
Gerald Grant apologized to the families of brothers Angel and Lauro Lopez-Salinas and Armando Cuenca-Curiel at his sentencing hearing on Thursday.
Court documents say Grant shot the three inside an SUV in South Salt Lake during a marijuana buy in February 2016 where both parties planned to rob each other.
The victims were 17 to 20 years old.
