Gunman in California salon massacre jailed for life

Gunman in California salon massacre jailed for lifeA gunman who massacred eight people at a packed hair salon in a small California beach town six years ago was sentenced Friday to life without parole. Scott Dekraai opened fire at the Salon Meritage in Seal Beach, south of Los Angeles, in October 2011, killing ex-wife Michelle and her friend, who had testified against him at a custody hearing, as well as six others. Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals handed the 47-year-old eight consecutive life sentences — one for each victim — describing him as the “face of evil” in the community.
