One gang member even posted a picture of him stealing the watch and belt of a rival gang member that he just wounded. The picture caption read: “I can’t give it back. You can’t walk no more.”
Violence between the two gangs started in 2009 after a member of the Rockstarz killed one of the Very Crispy Gangsters. Since then, their rivalry has led to 10 shootings causing the deaths of three gang members as well as injuring a 10-year-old bystander who was hit by a stray bullet while watching cartoons at home.
Most of the arrested gangsters are in their early 20’s with the oldest listed as 23 and the youngest under 18. All face charges of murder, attempted murder, and conspiracy.
