Several young members of two Brownsville, NY gangs were indicted in shootings. They terrorized numerous apartment complexes and left at least two dead.
The two gangs, Hood Starz of Marcus Garve village and the Wave Gang of the Langston Hughes Houses had been fighting a turf war for the last two years. Both gangs bragged about their exploits on Facebook and Twitter without fear of repercussions.
Two murders had been linked to these suspects as well as shootings, robberies and assaults since 2010. Worst yet, police reported than innocent bystanders were killed and other innocent victims were injured after a gang member fired openly into a courtyard while attempting to shoot rival gang members.
