Teen Sentenced To 9 Years In Prison For Drive-by Shooting, Twin Brother Sought By Oroville Police

A young Oroville man has been sentenced for a drive-by shooting, and police are still looking for his twin brother. On May 28th some people were standing in front of a Spencer Avenue home when a black Infiniti rolled by and a Glock 9 millimeter semi-auto handgun was seen sticking out the passenger’s window and a shot was heard. A 21-year-old man was hit by a shot that went through his arm and lodged in a wall. The witnesses described the car, but not the occupants. The car, driven by 18-year-old Riley Sewall was later stopped by Oroville Police, who determined that Riley’s brother Aidan had fired the shot. Aidan was arrested in June for a felony assault in Red Bluff and, when questioned, admitted to the Oroville shooting. It was apparently in retaliation for an incident from the previous night. Aidan pleaded no contest to assault with a semi-automatic firearm causing great bodily injury. His defense argued for a shorter sentence because of his age, but prosecutors pointed out the many photos of Aidan holding guns on his social media. He was sentenced to nine years in state prison. Riley is being sought as an accessory.
