The Carson gang member received the death penalty and two additional life sentences without the possibility of parole for the mid-1990s crime wave committed with Millsap.

Loot killed armored car guard Herrera in November 1995; armored car driver Moon at Curtiss Middle School in Carson; and Kissick in November 1995.

Another Carson gang member was sent to prison forever for the crimes. A fourth suspect hung himself in jail.

Investigators called Loot and his partner Millsap the most vicious they had ever dealt with, sneaking up on armored car guards, executing them and taking their money.

When the jury announced its verdicts, Loot called the panel “Stupid (expletive.)”

During the case, he assaulted a deputy and was caught with a homemade knife concealed in his rectum.


2 Sentenced to Death in String of Fatal Robberies

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge J.D. Smith said Bruce Millsap, 33, and Kendrick Loot, 28, deserved execution because of the cruelty and callousness they showed during their yearlong rampage, including shooting armored car drivers without giving them a chance to hand over the money.

"These are super predators, whose actions were completely bereft of any understanding or compassion for human life," Deputy Dist. Atty. Anthony Myers said after the sentencing hearing. "In the end, justice will be achieved when . . . they are executed."

Millsap was sentenced to eight death sentences plus 200 years for first-degree murders of eight people. Loot got one death sentence plus two life sentences for his role in three murders.

Millsap may also face charges that he tried to hire someone to kill Myers, along with Deputy Dist. Atty. Kevin McCormick and two witnesses in the case.

Loot faces another murder trial in Riverside County.

Under state law, the men's sentences of death by lethal injection will automatically be appealed.

Both men were found guilty of the Nov. 30, 1995, robbery-murder of armored car driver Fernando Herrera in the Queen City Bank in Long Beach, the Feb. 9, 1996, robbery-murder of armored car driver James Moon at a Carson school and the Nov. 15, 1995, murder of Ramone McKissick, who was shot by Millsap as Loot was driving.

Millsap was also convicted last month of five other murders and on 15 counts of robbery and attempted murder in communities across Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties.

Loot also was convicted on several counts of attempted murder, robbery and attempted robbery.

Loot's attorney, Richard LaPan, said his client should not have been sentenced to death because he did not actually pull the trigger to kill any of the victims.

But LaPan also said that his client had said he would rather die by lethal injection than spend his life in prison.

LaPan said he would appeal his client's case anyway because Loot might change his mind in a month. "I think his life is worth saving, and even if I didn't, it's my duty anyway," the attorney said.

A third man, Richard Colston, a former accomplice who testified against Loot and Millsap, awaits trial on four murder charges and could face the death penalty if convicted.

A fourth accomplice, Emanuel Brown, hanged himself in his jail cell when he learned he would have to stand trial.
