Man who killed woman after fender bender gets at least 82 years in prison

A 27-year-old man who was convicted of murder and attempted murder last year has been sentenced to 82-years-to life in prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Michael Green, of San Francisco, was found guilty of murder Aug. 19, 2016, for the killing of Melquisha Warren and the attempted murder of Danisha Bean. He was sentenced Tuesday in San Francisco Superior Court.

Green opened fire on the two women outside of a South of Market night club on Nov. 17, 2013, after a traffic incident.

Bean was seriously injured and had to be hospitalized for 38 days, and Warren died.

Green was arrested in Miami, Florida, where he had been hiding and using an assumed name, on May 16, 2014.

“Ms. Dean’s bravery is to be commended,” said Assistant District Attorney Heather Trevisan in a statement. “She witnessed a violent man shoot her childhood friend, and she was brave enough to take the stand and play a critical role in holding him accountable.”
