Pasadena Denver Lane set of the Bloods gang 30 people rounded up as part of a racketeering indictment targeting Maryland and California leadership

22:35 |

Frank Williams, 25, also known as Lee Kelly, was one of more than 30 people rounded up as part of a racketeering indictment targeting Maryland and California leadership of the Pasadena Denver Lane set of the Bloods gang.Court papers from that indictment allege that the gang's members are responsible for a host of violent incidents, and Baltimore police announced Tuesday that they have placed a detainer on Williams linking him to the Sept. 3, 2008, shooting of 26-year-old Tyrone Bowie.Federal court papers indicate that Bloods leadership in California had become dissatisfied with him and ordered other members to harm him. In turn, he came up with his own revenge plot against a Maryland leader of the gang, records show.In February, law enforcement listening on a wiretap heard Emiliano Aguas, the Baltimore leader of the PDL Bloods, discussing his desire to demote Williams and assume control of people under his command.On April 29, California PDL leader James McCuin ordered Williams to "physically discipline" another member, according to court records. That same day, records show, McCuin got on a speaker phone and ordered multiple members to beat Williams for taking too long to carry out his orders. Federal prosecutors say Williams was attacked that day.After that incident, authorities say they listened as Williams recruited an unknown man to retaliate against Aguas. He instructed the man not to shoot through the door but to "get up close and personal," court records show
Baltimore police say Williams was one of two men who shot and killed Bowie as he stood outside a liquor store in the 2100 block of Ashland Ave. in East Baltimore. Bowie was shot in the back of the head and died at an area hospital the next day.
Williams, as Lee Kelly, was also charged in 2007 with first-degree murder, but was found not guilty of all charges by a jury in March 2008, according to court records. He also received probation before judgment on two separate drug distribution cases in 2004.
