PASADENA — A store clerk testified in Pasadena Superior Court on Tuesday that she saw two alleged Burbank gang members fighting with a Glendale man two years ago, and that one of them then followed him into the store and fired eight gunshots. Nubia Verdin said she hid behind the front counter at the American Market just after 10 p.m. Sept. 21, 2007, when the shots rang out. After looking up from behind the counter and seeing red matter splattered throughout the market, she ran to the man, who was identified as Enrique Pinela.
