Gang member sentenced to death in Riverside

A gang member has been sentenced to death for an execution-style murder in Riverside in 2004. The Riverside County District Attorney's office says 33-year-old George Anthony Hernandez Jr. was sentenced Friday, five months after a jury convicted him of murder with a special circumstance of lying in wait.

In July 2004, Hernandez killed Jorge Ortiz outside a Riverside bar, shooting him five times in the head and chest.

Investigators say the shooting was a gang hit.
