THE BRONX - The streets of The Bronx are a little safer today after several alleged gang members were taken into custody Wednesday for crimes dating back to 2009.

The men, who authorities describe as an armed and violent crew, are facing a range of serious charges, including shooting at a police officer, home invasion and illegally carrying guns.

Four of the suspects had previously been charged and placed in custody, but five new arrests were the result of a partnership between the NYPD, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Investigators say two of the men involved, Michael Campbell and Patrick Lewis, have been charged with the murder of alleged marijuana dealer Patrick Woodburn on Mickle Avenue in The Bronx.

Officials say one man, Prince Wareham, is still at large.
