Eight alleged members of the "Ivy Street Gangstas (ISG)" street gang were indicted by a federal grand jury for running a criminal organization that engaged in acts of violence including murders, robberies, narcotics distribution, and weapons violations.

According to the 36-count indictment, the eight men are accused of coordinating with one another to obtain money and property through robberies, narcotics distribution, and acts of bank and credit card fraud, as well as aggravated identity theft, a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

The proceeds of such criminal activities were allegedly used for the benefit of all gang members.

In the indictment, the alleged gang members are also accused of protecting their criminal activities through the use of intimidation, violence, and threats of violence including the murders of John Henry Green on Jan. 18, 2007 and Demareo Dontae Hardy on March 20, 2009.

The following are charged in the indictment:
· Andra G. Green, aka "Andra Gabriel Green, Jr., Giz, Gizzle, A. Gizzle, and A. J.," 24, of Hampton, Va.
· Zakarie X. Williams, aka "Carie, Karie," 37, of Hampton

Members and associates of ISG included members of the Bloods and Crips, which are national gangs.
