According to law enforcement officials, the "10th Street Gang" operated a criminal enterprise that trafficked in cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and violence.

“One of the charges involves stealing a car first to be utilized for shooting rival gang members and resulted in the killing of Omar Fraticello-Lugo," said U.S. Attorney William Hochul.

Hochul says gang members are also charged with two other murders. Miguel Moscosco is charged with killing Christian Portes on June 13, 2009. Another gang member Saul Santana is charged with the murder of Anthony Colon both on June 26, 2009.

Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda said there may be others, "These people were very, very violent. There are other murders that we have not proven but we believe are tied to 10th Street Gang, so I believe now they gone and hopefully for good."

Thirteen alleged gang members were arrested on federal warrants this week, 14 others were already behind bars on related charges. Law enforcement officials are still looking for another alleged gang member Michael Bobbitt.

Hochul wanted to emphasize that all those indicted are innocent until proven guilty, but he believes the state is ready to go to trial in the case

Under federal racketeering laws if convicted the gang members face a maximum penalty of life behind bars.

"If they're detained in federal prison or one of the facilities around here they won't be able to commit any other acts of violence," said Hochul.
