    Raleigh police have charged 13 people with murder, including two minors. Mionte Jarquel Hines and Tarus Camelia Jones are the most recent arrests in connection with the shooting.

    Police are saying little about the strategy behind the huge number of suspects.

    "When [investigators] got to the point that they believed probable cause existed to charge people with murder in this case, they took that probable cause to a magistrate, who has concurred in every instance," said Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue
    The police are denying it is a crackdown on gang violence.:waitasec:
    That's too bad! I was hoping this was the start of a new trend!

    Sounds like they want some of them to roll over on the guiltiest among them. Keep us posted on how it proceeds and how actually go to trial for murder.

    Apparently the young man was wearing a blue shirt and the bloods told him to take off the shirt. He wasn't in a gang at all according to his parents

    http://www.newsobserver.com/1236/story/448839.html


    Jamel Amien Jefferys' parents said he had to defend himself from about 10 members of the Bloods gang a day before the shooting, when he was walking home from a convenience store.

    "They tried to make him take his clothes off. He was wearing a blue shirt," said his mother, Doris Durham. "They jumped him, and he ran." Blue is the color associated with the Crips, the Bloods' rival gang.

    Raleigh police said the suspects were among a cadre of people who loaded into three vehicles and drove by firing the shots that killed Jefferys. Police said the shooting involved gang members and their associates, but they would not comment on other gang activity in the neighborhood.

    They"tag" their areas and also have little signets of opportnity. A red kerchief hanging out of a pocket as an example.It could be different depending on the locale.

    Dark Shadows could give you a more complete synopsis as she is LE.My experience is being an on-site agent for a condo conversion. It is replete with gang members. More than I ever knew before.
