2 Sentenced in Beating Death of Classmate
Two 19-year-old former students from Narbonne High School in Harbor City have been sentenced to prison for fatally beating a fellow student who “disrespected” their tagging crew.
Christian Bremmer received a six-year prison term and Rene Nieves was sentenced to 11 years in the May 22, 1995, attack on Shazeb Andleeb, who died of a crushed trachea.
The 17-year-old victim was in class compiling a guest list for a going-away party he was throwing for himself when a member of a tagging crew called the Players Club grabbed the list and wrote the crew’s initials on it.
Andleeb took back the paper and scratched out the initials. Later that week, he was pummeled and kicked by the defendants and four other members of the tagging crew during a morning recess at the school.
Andleeb died shortly after being transported to Bay Harbor Hospital.
