A reputed gang member was sentenced Tuesday to 27 years in state prison. Sergio Ramos shot at another man in Oak View in May 2008. He was arrested about a month later and has been in custody ever since.

Ventura County Sheriff's deputies and gang investigators found two bullet holes in a car and seven shell casings on the day of the shooting. They talked to Kyle Hoffman who said he was shot at but didn't report the incident to authorities at the time.

Deputies believe Ramos shot at Hoffman because he thought Hoffman vandalized his house.

A search warrant was served at Ramos' house in Oak View, where he was arrested for assault with a firearm and street terrorism. Investigators located ammunition similar to the shell casings found at the scene of the shooting.

In October of this year, a jury found Ramos guilty of attempted murder. He was sentenced to prison and will be eligible for parole in 2032 at the age of 51.
