Bronx drill rap artist Kay Flock and 7 other members of Bronx gangs Sev Side and Third Side have actually been charged with murder and racketeering, to name a few “violent offenses.”
“Over a span of several years, the members of these gangs allegedly terrorized neighborhoods in the Bronx and Manhattan by killing and shooting other people,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams stated in a news release from the Department of Justice. “Through these charges, we will hold Sev Side and Third Side members responsible for plaguing our communities with gun violence.”
The DOJ declares that in between 2019 to 2022, members of Sev Side and Third Side came together to terrify their own and surrounding communities by dedicating indiscriminate shootings versus members of competing street gangs. They likewise implicated the gangs of promoting weapon violence on social networks and through music that referenced genuine acts of violence.
NYPD Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell stated: “The deadly nexus of gangs and illegal guns in New York City is a grave threat to public safety in our city. Combatting this crisis is the NYPD’s top priority, and today’s indictments are another step toward ridding our streets of violence and fear. I want to thank the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and everyone else involved with this case who worked to make our city safer for all the people we serve.”
