Witmer Street in Central Los Angeles

Witmer Street (WST) is a predominately Hispanic street gang located in the downtown Los Angeles area just west of the 110 Freeway. Although the Witmer gang was not the direct target of a 1997 gang injunction, when the City Attorney defined a “safety zone” for a gang injunction against 18th Street, it covered Witmer’s neighborhood too.

Because plans to construct one of the most multi-purpose arenas (the Staples Center) was scheduled, there was a concern that Lakers, Clippers and Kings fans might be interacting with gang members from the area. Because of this heightened fear, the gang injunction was put in into effect three years prior. After the Staples center opened in the fall of 2000, other investments and gentrification projects followed such as the construction of the luxury apartments, The Medici on Bixel Street in Witmer Street’s neighborhood.

Their main rivals are 18th Street.
