NEW YORK (AP) - A grand jury in Queens has indicted 31 reputed members of violent street gangs.

Authorities say 17 of the defendants are charged with plotting the death of two rival gang members.

It’s also alleged that 16 of the defendants conspired to commit robberies to raise bail money for an alleged gang leader being held on a weapons charge.

The affiliated street gangs are called SNOW, Loyalty Over Everything and Young Bosses.

They’ve operated primarily in the Rosedale, Laurelton and Rochdale Village neighborhoods.

The defendants range in age from 15 to 22.

The case was announced Wednesday by District Attorney Richard A. Brown and Police Commissioner William Bratton.
