Bronx DA: Multiple gang members indicted on 155 counts for crimes in the Bronx, Manhattan
Gang members are being charged in both the Bronx and in Manhattan on counts that involve gun violence as well as financial crimes, Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark announced on Tuesday.
DA Clark says eight gang members have been indicted on 155 counts, including conspiracy to commit murder.
DA Clark and the Manhattan district attorney, along with Police Commissioner Dermot Shea, announced charges against the gang members of the “2030 Crew” also known as “30 Block.”
The alleged gang members are tied to shootings of two innocent bystanders in the Bronx, including one at a car dealership where a father was shot while trying to shield his kids from gunfire, according to DA Clark.
The suspects are also tied to another shooting where a 52-year-old woman was wounded while shots were fired at rival gang members, prosecutors say.
As part of the investigation, authorities say 12 guns were recovered, along with ammunition.
"Precision enforcement, intelligence, we have to use all of our tools to put an end to this. I will not, and I repeat, I will not let the Bronx be destroyed bullet by bullet,” said DA Clark.
She adds that five of the defendants are also being charged in Manhattan for stealing from Uber and Lyft drivers--as well as for stealing more than $300,000 in pandemic-related unemployment funds.
