Man sent to prison in attack on security officer www.privateofficer.com
Marquise Deangelo Loftis, 20, pleaded guilty to attempted murder and other charges.
Prosecutors said Loftis stole a gun from a security guard on July 15, 2009, at the Encanto Station and used it to shoot another guard, David Reynoso, three nights later at the Grossmont Center Station.
The defendant also stole the gun belonging to Reynoso, authorities said.
Two nights after the shooting, Loftis punched another security guard who questioned him about loitering at the Encanto Station.
Several witnesses identified Loftis as the assailant in the various incidents.
Police watching an Oak Park house saw him get into a car and drive away, but he was pulled over and surrendered peacefully a week after the shooting.
