Posted: Updated:

Seven alleged Trinitarios gang members were arrested Tuesday, according to police.

The NYPD has teamed up with federal agents to round up alleged members of the Trinitarios gang. Investigators say the men arrested are part of the Sunset sector of the gang.

Investigators say the men in custody took part in a number of violent acts from 2010 to 2019. They say those acts include the 2013 murder of Michael Beltre. Beltre was shot to death on Jerome Avenue.

Prosecutors added that most of the violence centered around conflict with rival gang members.
