[words from the Department of Justice official report]

The collaboration of local, state and federal law enforcement under the Detroit One initiative has resulted in the indictment of nine more members of the 6 Mile Chedda Grove street gang from Detroit’s east side, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade announced today.

Joining McQuade in the announcement was Special Agent in Charge David P. Gelios, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Detroit Division, and Chief James Craig, Detroit Police Department.

The initial indictment in June charged Edwin Mills and Carlo Wilson with murder in aid of racketeering for the mid-afternoon shootings that occurred at the Troester Market on December 1, 2015, that resulted in two deaths and serious injuries to children.  The superseding indictment unsealed today adds nine more defendants and charges racketeering conspiracy, additional murders in aid of racketeering and related offenses.  Two additional murders charged in the superseding indictment also occurred in broad daylight on February 7, 2015, and August 20, 2015.

According to the superseding indictment, “6 Mile Chedda Grove” is a street gang that operates primarily within an area bordered roughly by East McNichols Road to the north, Kelly Road to the east, Houston-Whittier Street to the south, and Chalmers Street to the west.  The superseding indictment alleges that 6 Mile Chedda Grove is a violent organization responsible for murders, assaults, robberies, and firearms and narcotics trafficking in the Detroit metropolitan area and in other states.  The gang allegedly uses violence to retaliate against rivals, to intimidate witnesses and to advance members’ positions within the gang.

Under the Detroit One initiative, and through the lead efforts of the FBI’s Violent Gang Task Force and the Detroit Police Gang Intelligence Unit, law enforcement identified several members of this gang who have been charged in the superseding indictment in federal court.  The Task Force includes representatives of the Detroit Police Department, Michigan Department of Corrections and the U.S. Border Patrol.
