Suspected Gang Member Arrested In Murder of USC Student Victor McElhaney

Los Angeles, CA--A resolution is on the horizon in the killing of USC student Victor McElhaney, who was shot and killed during a robbery attempt March 10, while exiting a store a mile and a half from USC’s campus.

According to ABC 7:

Prosecutors are charging Ivan Hernandez with one count of murder while being an active member of a criminal street gang. That makes him eligible for the death penalty, according to the L.A. County District Attorney’s office.

If convicted, Hernandez could face a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

McElhaney is the son of Oakland City Councilwoman Lynette McElhaney and is remembered for his passion of Jazz music. He transferred to USC in 2017 from Cal State East Bay.
