Documented 25 Austin members of the Piru Blood gang, a subset of the Bloods, a notorious street gang founded in Los Angeles.

Police said on Saturday they responded to at least two gang-related drive-by shootings.Javier Enrique Ronces, 17, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and police said they are trying to find other possible suspects.
Ronces is a documented member of the PuroBarrioUnidas gang and had been in jail after shooting at several people last year, according to an arrest affidavit. No other details were available on those incidents Thursday.According to court records, police got calls Saturday about two drive-by shootings in Southeast Austin — at an apartment complex at 2401 Lakeshore Blvd. and a home in the 800 block of Vargas Drive. No one was injured in the first incident, but a man was shot in the neck in the Vargas Drive shooting.Noble said that several men in a car may have been "mean-mugging," a gang term for trying to catch the notice of a victim, then shooting at them.
"They were out having what to them was fun," Noble said.
Along McClusky's street in South Austin on Thursday, neighbors expressed sadness at her death.Morris said his 12-year old daughter often carried McClusky's newspaper to her door. In turn, McClusky gave his daughter Christmas gifts, he said.In recent years, McClusky, whose husband of 53 years died in March 2006, volunteered to collect signatures to limit parking along the residential streets near Bowie High School.
She offered to accompany neighbor Exiquio Salinas, 62, on her door-to-door quest.
"Nobody turned her down," Salinas said.
