Alleged gang leader arraigned in Camden slayings | Philadelphia Inquirer | 04/14/2010: "lanky Powell is the leader of Camden's Lueders Park Piru Bloods, named after the gang's Los Angeles roots.
The day before he was slain, Hawkins was with Powell and other gang members at the 36th Street River Line Station in Pennsauken, authorities said. Hawkins was accused of stealing alcohol from the home of a gang member and warned by Powell to stay out of Camden.
During the station visit, a passerby who was talking on the phone with his brother smiled and said hello to a girl among the Bloods gang members. Powell became enraged, according to a source.
The passerby told his brother he was in trouble and took off his coat to fight Powell, the source said. By the time the brother got there, Powell had shot the passerby, according to police. Powell then wounded the brother, officials said.
Pennsauken Lt. Eric Davies said neither of those victims had any gang affiliation. Both men survived.
'Our victims were in the wrong place at the wrong time, which makes what happened so disturbing,' Davies said. Powell is the only person charged in those shootings"
