Los Angeles takes aim at area gangs

The City Attorney’s Office sought an injunction Friday that would prevent members of six South Los Angeles gangs from associating in public or possessing weapons and graffiti tools.

The injunction names the All for Crime, Barrio Mojados, Blood Stone Villains, Florencia 13, Oriental Boys and Pueblo Bishops gangs in a 13.2-square-mile area referred to as the Florence-Pueblo Del Rio Safety Zone. That area is bounded by Washington Boulevard to the north and Manchester Avenue to the south, and San Pedro and Vernon in the northwest to San Pedro and Alameda Street to the east.

“This proposed injunction and safety zone have been carefully tailored to address the continuing problem of gang violence by six notorious street gangs in South L.A.,” said City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo.

“With this injunction my prosecutors and the LAPD will have an important tool they can use to suppress ongoing gang violence and help start the healing process in this community.”
