A member of the Du Roc Crips gang in Duarte was sentenced today to 332 years to life in state prison for his role in the shooting of seven bystanders in Pasadena, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Marquis Duran Turner (dob 4/12/89) of Apple Valley was convicted by a jury on April 2 of one count each of conspiracy to commit murder and shooting at an occupied motor vehicle and seven counts of attempted murder.

Deputy District Attorney David Ayvazian of the Hardcore Gang Division said the jury also found true gang allegations and allegations of a principal discharging a firearm causing great bodily injury.


On March 28, a different jury found co-defendant, Anthony Deon Edwards, aka Deon Jackson (dob 12/17/91) of Duarte guilty of the same counts and allegations.

Edwards was sentenced on April 26 to 246 years to life in state prison.

On Jan. 16, 2017, Edwards and Turner conspired to go to Pasadena with an AR-15 rifle and a handgun to shoot at rival gang members, according to evidence presented in court. The two defendants opened fire on a group not affiliated with gangs near Garfield Avenue and Buckeye Street, the prosecutor said.

One of the seven victims suffered permanent damage to her fingers as a result of the shooting.
