JONESBORO, Georgia — Two men have been sentenced in the death of a 13-year-old boy who was shot during an armed robbery and attempted carjacking.

WSB-TV reported Friday (http://bit.ly/1Fm9D1m ) that Gilberto Gomez has been sentenced to life plus 20 years in prison in the 2013 death of Steven Galindo of Forest Park. Sergio Alvear has been sentenced to 20 years.

Authorities have said the two were riding in an SUV when they approached Galindo as he was putting air in the tire of his sister's truck. They demanded the keys to the woman's truck and their other belongings. Police have said the pair wanted to steal the truck because of its specialized doors, which were a similar style to a Lamborghini. The so-called butterfly doors swing up to open rather than out.
