Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow was convicted last year and sentenced to life in prison in Leung's killing and on racketeering charges. He has denied involvement in the killing.

Leung led a community organization that included members who dealt drugs and committed other crimes. A businessman, Leung had been appointed to city economic task forces by two San Francisco mayors. He was killed in his store by a masked gunman in February 2006.
