Three men are scheduled to be arraigned today on murder charges for the 2013 slaying of a former Garfield High School football player, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Jonathon Joseph Gonzalez (dob 12/4/87), Roque Solis (dob 11/4/85) and Anthony Aaron Gabriel (dob 7/23/90), all of Los Angeles, are expected to be arraigned in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney Hilary Williams of the Hardcore Gang Division is prosecuting the case.

Each defendant was charged in case BA442133 with murdering 21-year-old Gabriel S., who was at a party with some former teammates on May 25, 2013, in East Los Angeles. All three also face gang allegations.

The victim was in a garage when a car drove by and Gonzalez and Solis are accused of opening fire. The young man was shot and killed while another partygoer was wounded.

Gonzalez, Solis and Gabriel each face one count of attempted murder and four counts of assault with a firearm. Gonzalez also was charged with one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

If convicted as charged, all three men face a possible maximum sentence of life in prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau.
