The 27-year-old culprit, was convicted on September 13 of one count of murder, 14 counts of attempted murder and one count of carjacking following a string of violent crimes in April 2017.

According to the authorities, she and Alejandro Lazo, 22, shot drivers and witnesses at random; they killed one man and injured three people.

Judge Roger Ito sentenced Tuesday morning Reyna to 83 years and four months in addition to 270 years for her crimes.

Alejandro, who is facing the same charges as Reyna, is scheduled to appear in the court for a pretrial hearing in December.

Authorities said Reyna and Alejandro began the rampage by shooting a pedestrian in Whittier.

The two then stole a man’s car and continued shooting all the way they went through Whittier and La Mirada.

The duo is also accused of fatally shooting 44-year-old Jose Ricardo Sahagun, who was sitting in his car in La Mirada.

The two reportedly passed a handgun to each other as they took turns firing while Alejandro was driving the car.
