OAKLAND, Calif. (CN) – The Oakland city attorney seeks an injunction to prevent 42 suspected gang members from associating in a proposed safety zone in Oakland’s Fruitvale district. The injunction would prohibit members of the Norteños gang from loitering, selling or possessing drugs and guns or intimidating residents in the 2 square miles in Central Oakland that the gang claims as its “turf.”
City Attorney John Russo says gang members “stake out and claim different parts of the proposed safety zone as their ‘turf,’ by, among other things, shooting at other street gangs on public streets and in public places, defacing public and private property with gang graffiti, loitering in strategic public places in menacing numbers and intimidating the community in the proposed safety zone.”
He claims gang members have shown weapons and attacked innocent people on the street, at bus stops and in other public places in the zone.
