    AZ - Johnathan Federico, 7, shot to death in Tucson, 9 April 2011



    Martinez quickly realized the noises the kids heard were not fireworks; they were gunshots. Twenty-one-year-old Alvin Valenzuela was reportedly firing a gun just for kicks. And, just as she realized what was going on, little Johnathan, who everyone called John-John, decided to check out the commotion too. That's when Valenzuela turned his aim toward the apartment.

    "When I went to grab Jon-Jon, he turned around with gun and shot again, and kept firing after that," continued Martinez.

    Police say Valenzuela opened fire on the 7-year-old., and one bullet was enough to take his life.


    RIP John-John

    "Are you upset that he was in prison for being involved in a double homicide and got out?" KGUN9 asked. "Oh yeah, usually people get life for something like that, and, he didn't. It's something I don't understand," said Martinez.

    A month after Valenzuela was released, Tucson police arrested him for killing Johnathan Federico.

    From November 2012:


    Alvin Valenzuela, 23, was sentenced to thirty-and-a-half years behind bars for the death of Johnathan Federico.

    Valenzuela pleaded guilty back in September to killing Federico.

    On April 9, 2011, Valenzuela was shooting off a pistol at Corbett Elementary School right across the street from Johnathan's apartment. The boy ran outside to check out the noise and was hit by one of Valenzuela's bullets. He died in his babysitter's arms.
