Members of the Southside Bloods, East Side Bloods, Southside Rattlers, or West Side Rattlers gangs.indicted on 45 counts of aggravated assault

06:45 |

Ten young Albany men, most 19 or 20 years of age, were indicted Wednesday on 45 counts of aggravated assault, firearm crimes, and street gang activity. Prosecutors say they are members of the Southside Bloods, East Side Bloods, Southside Rattlers, or West Side Rattlers gangs.Prosecutors say December 27th in the 11-hundred block of West Gordon Avenue they opened fire with shotguns and pistols. 17 year old John Greene and 19 year old Jonathon Williams were both wounded."From an earlier incident where there had been a brief altercation, and then this retaliatory incident. And that's what this involved," said Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards.Both Greene and Williams are recovering, and were not charged in the indictment. Edwards said the Grand Jury message is clear, that gang violence will not be tolerated in Albany."This type of gang warfare endangers everybody and this is a clear instance of this. They just opened fire and two people were hit," Edwards said.If the ten men are found guilty, they will likely spend most of the remainder of their lives behind bars.
"If they are convicted, their parole officer probably has not been born yet," Edwards said.Seven of the ten gang members have been released on bond, three remain in jail pending trial.
