New York - FBI Hunt For Leader Of Killer Brooklyn Gang
New York - Authorities are searching for one of the reputed leaders of a violent New York City gang that they say is responsible for a series for armed robberies and shootings.
The FBI says Devon Rodney was still a fugitive on Wednesday, a day after charges were announced against the Brooklyn-based Folk Nation gang. Gang member suspect Rahleek Odom also is being sought.
Federal prosecutors say Folk Nation is responsible for at least four murders, three attempted murders and six robberies. One of the victims was a 10-year-old bystander who was shot and injured during a turf war.
The men also are accused in the armed heist of a Hackensack, N.J., jewelry shop. Authorities say they also robbed people after using Internet ads to lure them to secluded spots.
