Gonzalez, said to be a member of the Dog Town gang, "brought a knife to a fist fight" with Davila, who used to associate with members of a rival gang, she said.
Gonzalez was convicted of first-degree felony murder, second-degree felony obstructing justice, and third-degree felony unlawful possession of a weapon. On Friday, Judge Vernice Trease ordered his sentences to run consecutively, meaning he will spend at least 21 years in prison, and possibly up to life.
According to testimony, Gonzalez was standing outside the Kohl's on Aug. 9, when he said something to Davila and a group of others walking in the store.
Inside the sore, Davila took his girlfriend's 4-year-old nephew into a restroom. As he was walking out, Gonzalez walked in.
After Gonzalez said something, a fight broke out.
Davila started to chase the man but noticed he was bleeding from his side, according to witnesses. On the way to the hospital, Davila complained his "vision was going white," and he eventually died from the stab wound to his spleen.
