Man found guilty for December gang-related murder

From staff reports
 

A jury found a 30-year-old man charged with shooting and killing a rival gang member in December guilty of first-degree murder Thursday morning.

Louis Hanson, 30, killed Aaron Cummings, 27, on Dec. 30. Prosecutors argued that Hanson killed Cummings in order to rise through the ranks of his own gang.

A witness told police that Hanson entered a home on 1607 N. Wall St. early in the morning and watched Hanson pull a revolver and shoot at Cummings.

Hanson faces life in prison under Washington’s “three strikes” law.
