Roseville man gets 90 years for shooting at cars on freeway

SACRAMENTO, CA - A Roseville man who terrorized drivers during the summer of 2009 by opening fire at vehicles as they drove on Sacramento-area freeways could very well be spending the rest of his life in prison.

After being convicted last month of attempted murder, 24-year-old Kyle Douglas Frank was sentenced to 90 years in prison
Monday.

All four shootings happened along Interstate 80.  Two were in the Antelope area; the other two happened in south Sacramento near I-5 and Florin Road.

The targets in all four shootings were either Hispanic or African-American. That prompted prosecutors to file hate crime allegations against Frank, but jurors rejected that charge when they convicted him on March 14.

Some jurors said after the verdict that the attacks appeared to be random, not racial.

Prosecutors say eight people, including two children, were endangered by the shootings. One person suffered minor injuries
