DA Announces Sweeping Broke Niggas Thievin' Gang Indictment

District Attorney Kamala Harris announced today that 10 members and associates of the notorious Bayview street gang known as Broke Niggas Thievin' have been indicted by a San Francisco criminal grand jury for dozens of felonies, including three murder charges.

The indictment came after three months of grand jury testimony from 77 witnesses, according to DA office spokesman Brian Buckelew. The defendants are scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning in Department 22 of San Francisco Superior Court.

The indictment includes charges for the 2009 murder of Delvon Fields, who was shot and killed in front of his three children, girlfriend, and mother; the 2008 murder of Gregory Chapman, a bus driver who was shot during a robbery; and the 2006 killing of Lloyd Randleston.

In a statement issued following a press conference this morning, Harris, who is running for state Attorney General, said her office would "hold this case out as a reminder to our young people that gang life is a dead end."
