Detective says Yepez 'started to smile' when he saw picture of victim

As the prosecution wrapped up its case Thursday against Yepez, 21, of Santa Maria, it attempted to show jurors that he randomly shot at a crowd of teens on Nov. 17, 2011 to bolster his reputation as a gang member. While neither Gabriel Salgado nor the friends he was with that night were gang members, shooting someone in enemy territory could bolster a gang member’s reputation.
