Seven suspected members of the Reccless Gang are accused of murdering two men and running a drug ring in Washington, DC, reports NBC Washington.
A federal grand jury indictment accuses all seven of being members of the Reccless Gang.
Court documents allege four of the men kidnapped Brandon White from a shopping mall and then three of the men stabbed and shot him to death before he could testify against them, according to WTOP News.
23-year-old Peter Le, 24-year-old Young Yoo and 26-year-old Joseph Duk-Hyun Lamborn are accused of executing White’s death and 26-year-old Sascha Amadeus Carlisle joined in the abduction.
NBC Washington reports that White had been beaten over a $10,000 drug debt in 2018 and had been scheduled to testify in that case.
“I feel very angry, very upset, that they did that to my son,” White’s mother said to the TV station. “He meant a lot to me, but at the same time, I’m happy that I’m getting closure for my family.”
Three of the others indicted are accused of charges ranging from racketeering, money laundering, firearms charges, distribution of controlled substances and conspiracy.
They are Anthony Nguyen Thanh Le, 27; Tony Minh Le, 26; and Sang Thanh Huynh, 30.
The Daily Mail reports that charges filed last year in California against Joshua Miliaresis alleged the gang members talked drug dealers to take on debt when buying drugs and then pressured them to work off that debt at Millaresis marijuana farm. The drugs would be shipped to Virginia, according to the charges.
The FBI also accuses gang members of carrying out fire bombings against people who owed them money.
