DES MOINES, Iowa — A third suspect is headed to prison for his involvement in a deadly shooting outside East High School in 2022.
Braulio Hernandez Salas was sentenced to 20 years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to two counts of intimidation with a dangerous weapon. He was one of 10 teens originally charged with murder and attempted murder, among other charges, in the shooting that killed 15-year-old Jose David Lopez and seriously injured 18-year-old Kemery Ortega and 16-year-old Jessica Lopez on March 7, 2022.
Several plea deals have been accepted in the case and two of the other suspects have already been sentenced.
