Whittier, Calif. (Bing)

A Whittier man was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison Friday for shooting his former friend to death after they had a falling out over money and a woman.

Jose Antonio Barrios, 22, was convicted in January in the death of 27-year-old Robert Guerrero in 2013 after the two ran into each other at a Stater Bros. supermarket. Barrios got into Guerrero's truck, and they drove to a residential area of Norwalk, where he shot Guerrero three times, pushed him out and then drove off.

Guerrero's truck was later found two blocks from Barrios' home. Barrios was arrested a few months later.
