6 Reputed Street Gang Members Plead Guilty in D.C.

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.

The U.S. Attorney's office said two other men already pleaded guilty in the same case and a third member of the street gang is still being sought.
