Nearly three dozen Brooklyn gang members busted in major gun takedown


Nearly three dozen Brooklyn gang members from rival factions who apparently hated each other to such an extent that they attempted to attack one another in central booking are charged in a major gun takedown announced Tuesday.

NYPD top cop Keechant Sewell joined Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez Tuesday to announce a major gang takedown in the borough resulting from Operation Close Quarters, a law enforcement sweep that included the confiscation of numerous handguns on display at the Brooklyn DA’s office on Nov. 15.
