Two members of the "Hoover Crips" street gang were indicted today for the murder of a federal witness.

According to a Department of Justice press release, Lorell Battle and Gaywone Blades premeditated the April murder of a federal witness because the witness was giving information to law enforcement about gang activities.

Allegedly Battle shot the victim 13 times at close range.

Battle and Blades were charged with conspiracy to commit murder, murder of federal witness and the use of the firearm during and in relation to a violent crime in retaliation against a federal witness.

The gang is notorious for its criminal activities of drug dealing, extortion and violence.

"The indictment reflects our vigorous and unwavering efforts to seek justice for the victim and curb gang violence in the Northern District of Oklahoma," said U.S. Attorney Danny Williams in the press release.
