Second suspect sentenced in July 2017 pot shop murder

National News

A man accused of killing another man outside a marijuana dispensary in South Bakersfield over a year ago was sentenced. 

Rudolph Gibson, 26, was sentenced to 13 years to life in prison for two felony counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, stemming from a shooting that killed Michael Dorrough on July 4 while out with his girlfriend, Alize Webber.

Gibson is one of the two men arrested in connection to Dorrough’s murder. Back in August, Troy Sanders was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility of parole for 30 years.

After an altercation, prosecutors said Gibson and Troy Sanders followed Dorrough and Webber to Mars Collective on South Union Avenue. Sanders allegedly fired into the couple’s car, killing Dorrough and wounding Webber, according to investigators.

In September, Gibson took a plea deal and a first-degree murder charge, two attempted murder charges and a charge for participating in a street gang, were all dropped.
