People v. McCloud, B228209

Defendants' convictions for second-degree murder and attempted murder for firing shots from a semiautomatic handgun at a party at which over 400 people were present, is reversed in part where: 1) because the record contains no evidence to support application of the "kill zone" theory, the trial court prejudicially erred by instructing the jury on the kill zone theory of attempted murder; and 2) the evidence is insufficient to sustain 46 attempted murder convictions.
