    Police say this surveillance video shows members of the Show Out Crew at a Chinatown bus stop after a violent robbery the morning of June 5.

    Six District of Columbia men who authorities say belonged to a street gang pleaded guilty to a series of beatings, robberies and other crimes.

    The men, part of the “Show Out” gang, targeted victims in the Chinatown, U Street and Adams Morgan neighborhoods and either robbed them, beat them up or both, police said.

    The men, who pleaded guilty to crimes including aggravated assault and obstructing justice, also committed flash-mob style robberies of convenience stores and gas stations.

    Sentencing is scheduled for May 10.
