9 alleged gang members indicted in DC beatings

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, DC -

Authorities announced the arrest of nine gang members who are accused of terrorizing residents over the last year in DC and Montgomery County.

DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier and members of the U.S Attorney's office announced eight men and one woman have been indicted on conspiracy and other charges connected to robberies and beatings throughout the District of Columbia. Lanier said victims from some of the attacks were left with broken jaws, broken teeth, and some had to be hospitalized.

Lanier says the gang that was called "Show out" carried out crimes in Chinatown, Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, and Bloomingdale.

Lanier says it is likely more gang members will be arrested and the crew could be linked to other crimes.
