NEW YORK (AP) — New York City authorities say they have taken down a violent street gang whose female factions went by names including "Bad Barbies."
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Wednesday that at its height, the Trinitarios gang had up to 100 female members. He said one was a 24-year-old involved in the fatal retaliatory shooting and in the shooting of a robbery victim outside a Mexican restaurant.
An investigation of the gang has resulted in arrests of 119 people in the Bronx and Manhattan since 2009.
Kelly and U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (buh-AHR'-uh) announced the latest arrests on Wednesday at a news conference.
Bharara said the gang would turn the streets in a "shooting gallery" if anyone infringed on its drug dealing or gun running.
