Ohio - Lima Police: Most Shootings Are Gang Related

LIMA - It seems as if shootings in Lima have become more and more common. What's even more alarming is that teens seem to be involved in almost all of them. Lima police say about 90 percent of these shootings are gang related. Just this last weekend, two shootings less than two hours hours apart. On Sunday, an 18-year-old was arrested in Columbus on a murder warrant. In connection to a fatal robbery last month.

"Right now the main affiliation with the gangs is east side gang and north side, which they have other affiliation within those gangs," said Detective Steve Stechschulte with the Lima Police Department. "Everybody comes to us and say what are you going to do to stop the gang problem," said Stechschulte.

California - Police deal a harsh low to Mexican mafia in Los Angeles

More than 300 law enforcement personnel swept an area east of Los Angeles in an operation targeting two Latino gangs that resulted in 52 arrests and the seizure of drugs with a street value of $1.6 million, California's Attorney General's Office said in a statement. 

Police seized 67 firearms, including assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons, as well as $100,000 in cash and quantities of methamphetamines, cocaine and marijuana, in Thursday's raids in Riverside County. 

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, or CDCR, assisted with the investigations and seizures inside the state prison system, where some of the criminal organizations continue their illegal activities. "A strong blow has been dealt to the Mexican Mafia that's constantly working to extend their criminal enterprise in this region," Derrick Marion, the chief of the CDCR's Office of Correctional Safety, said.
