NEW YORK -- More than 100 members of three New York City street gangs who waged years of deadly turf wars have been charged.
The three gangs operating in west Harlem were accused of two homicides, 19 non-fatal shootings and 50 incidents in which firearms were used, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said Wednesday.
The 103 indictments capped a 4.5-year investigation.
Many of those charged were taken into custody Wednesday.
