People v Vijay Bhushan and Lilron Jones

On March 2, 2015, a jury convicted Vijay Bhushan and Lilron Ravon Jones of first degree murder and attempted murder with firearm enhancements. A third defendant, Marquise Lamar Thompson, was tried separately for his role in the murder.

On December 30, 2012, at approximately 3:30 pm, four teenage girls and a six month old baby were on their way to Bayfair Mall. They walked through the apartment complexes known as the 69th Avenue Village. One of the girls recognized a boy hanging out in the courtyard. This boy and his friend came over to the girls to talk to them.

Meanwhile, defendant Jones and another gunman walked up to the group and opened fire. Defendant Bhushan was the getaway driver for defendant Jones and the other gunman. One of the girls, 15-year-old Jubrille Jordan, was shot in the back of the head and pronounced dead at the scene. One of the boys, Wyonye Bordley, 14-year-old at the time, was shot in the leg.

On July 10, 2015, defendant Lilron Ravon Jones was sentenced to 114 years to life in prison, defendant Vijay Bhushan was sentenced to 34 to life and Marquise Thompson to 32 years to life. The case was prosecuted by DDA Glenn Kim with assistance from DA Inspector Gus Galindo and Stephanie Lynch.
