Nine alleged members of the BNT gang in the Bayview and one alleged associate of the gang were taken into custody

20:49 |

Nine alleged members of the BNT gang in the Bayview and one alleged associate of the gang were taken into custody in recent days following a grand jury indictment issued Feb. 25, the district attorney's office said.
Arrested were London Shaw, 22, Antoine Fowler, 25, Clark Benson, 25, Cecil Terrel, 23, Brian Yang, 20, Cyril Hanna, 22, Julius Rhodes, 19, James Talley, 22, Thomas Sims III, 24, and Missy Davis, 20.
All 10 were scheduled to be arraigned in San Francisco Superior Court on Tuesday morning.
According to prosecutors, who say BNT stands for Broke Niggas Thievin', the gang has been implicated in dozens of violent crimes in San Francisco over the past several years.
The gang's territory is in the Third Street area, bordered by Newhall and Mendell streets and Kirkwood and Newcomb avenues. It also controls an area near Commer and Garlington courts, prosecutors said.
"The crimes charged in this indictment are symptoms of the disease that has taken hold of San Francisco and every other major city in the state, and that disease is gang violence," District Attorney Kamala Harris said in a statement.
Harris added that the "senseless violence gang members inflict on one another and on the community" would be prosecuted "with the maximum force of the law."
This case is "a reminder to our young people that gang life is a dead end," she said.
Shaw and Davis are accused in the July 16, 2009, fatal shooting of Delvon Fields, 28, who was gunned down in front of his mother, girlfriend and three children as they were driving on McKinnon Avenue near Third Street, prosecutors said.
Shaw, charged with murder, is believed to have been the shooter, and Hanna and Terrell were believed to have also been in the getaway vehicle, prosecutors said. Davis is charged with murder as an accomplice.
Shaw is also facing charges of robbery, conspiracy and firearm possession.
Fowler, Benson and Terrell are charged with the murder of Lloyd Randleston, 21, on Oct. 13, 2006. According to prosecutors, the three were friends with Randleston but lured him to a secluded area near Commer Court under the ruse that they were going to retaliate against a rival gang.
Once there, Fowler asked Randleston about a gun he was thought to have stolen from the gang, then allegedly shot and killed him, prosecutors said.
Fowler is charged with murder, conspiracy and firearm possession; Benson is charged with murder and conspiracy; and Terrell is charged with murder, conspiracy and drug possession.
Yang is charged with the fatal shooting of Gregory Chapman, 46, during a robbery on May 13, 2008. Chapman was a bus driver and father of three. Yang is also charged with conspiracy and carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.
Hanna, Rhodes and Talley are charged with robbery and conspiracy for separate robberies in 2007 and 2008. Sims is facing multiple drug and firearm possession charges
