Briefs: Hearing delayed in Linda shooting death case
Attorneys asked for more time Friday to review evidence and reports in the Yuba County homicide trial of the man charged with killing a Linda man in a gang-related drive-by shooting last month.
Kong Meng Vue's preliminary hearing was postponed and a new conference was scheduled for March 13 in Yuba County Superior Court.
Vue, 25, has pleaded not guilty in the Feb. 3 death of 20-year-old Teng Yang, who was gunned down outside his home in the 5800 block of Poplar Avenue.
Three other people were injured when a dark-colored sedan pulled into the driveway and sprayed the small Super Bowl party gathering with bullets. All three survived, authorities said.
Yang's family has said he had no connection to any criminal street gangs. Authorities have not said whether they believe Yang was the intended target of the attack.
