According to report, Miguel A. Andrade’s cousin identified as Victor Andrade, was a former member of Latin Kings. The deceased, Antonio Hernandez was a current member of the gang.
On Thursday, around 9:45 a.m., Miguel, his cousin Victor and a man who was in his late 20s were ambushed by Hernandez when they entered a parking lot south of the courthouse.
Hernandez who was reported to had been in possession of multiple weapons walked up to the trio and opened fire on them.
