New York officials issued indictments for a black gang known as “No Love City,” an offshoot of the “Folks” gang. The vicious street gang was responsible for terrorizing the Black community through murder, gun violence and drug activity. The gang ruled the streets for over two years until Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson announced the indictments.

According to Thompson, “These defendants caused a wave of terror throughout the streets of Brooklyn with no regard for human life. Some of these shootings happened in front of children.” The DA’s office issued 76 indictments that include 10 shootings that left one person dead and 10 wounded, including an innocent senior citizen who was left paralyzed by a stray bullet. Fifteen of the suspects are young Black men between the ages of 18 to 27. Two of the suspects remain at large and one is awaiting extradition from New Jersey. The group faces a host of other charges that include conspiracy to commit murder and weapons possession, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
