SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) -- A San Francisco jury has found Edwin Ramos guilty of murdering a  father and two of his sons in an afternoon shooting in the city's Excelsior District in 2008.

      Ramos, 25, an alleged MS-13 gang member, was accused of gunning down Anthony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16, on June  22, 2008, near Congdon and Maynard streets as they drove home from a family  outing.

      Prosecutors alleged that Ramos shot the Bolognas after mistaking them for rival gang members, and that the killings were in retaliation for a  shooting that injured another MS-13 member in San Francisco earlier that day.

      Ramos admitted during the trial that he was driving the Chrysler 300 from which the shots were fired, but said another gang member, Wilfredo  "Flaco" Reyes, was the shooter.

      A third son who was in the victims' car at the time of the shooting, Andrew Bologna, survived and testified that Ramos was the one who  fired the shots and was the only one in the Chrysler.

      The jury began deliberating last Wednesday and came back with the verdict Wednesday afternoon.
