new report paints a troubling picture of the Oklahoma City metro's gang problem.

11:54 |


  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ranks Oklahoma City right up there with Los Angeles in the number of gang-related homicides. KOCO Eyewitness News 5's Katy Blakey took those numbers to Oklahoma City's police chief. "We've had the gang problem since the late 80s, and it's grown. We saw huge growth in the early 90s, and we saw huge growth in the early 2000s," said Police Chief Bill Citty. The study shows between 2004 and 2008 that 63 people died during gang violence. Citty said his officers are making progress but that change doesn't happen overnight -- and it will take more than just law enforcement. "The report doesn't trouble me. It's the fact that it's so difficult to get a handle on it that troubles me," he said. The CDC study tracked information over a four-year period. Citty said that since the study was completed, they've seen a big drop in the number of drive-by shootings.
