Two suspected gang members were sentenced on Wednesday on firearms charges from a trip to a shooting range in December 2010.

Jeffrey Medina, 20, and Sherwin Garcia, 21, rented three high-powered firearms at a shooting range in Salisbury and shot almost 500 rounds of ammunition at targets while on probation from previous firearms convictions.

Medina was sentenced to 18 months in prison and Garcia was sentenced to 12 months, each followed by three years of supervised release and a restriction from certain areas of Jamaica Plains and from being with certain people.

At the hearing, the government claimed that Medina and Garcia were part of Jamaica Plains’ Mozart Street Gang

The suspects pleaded guilty to possession of firearms while on parole on December 22, 2010. The sentences will not begin until the men have completed their previous parole sentences.
