MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A federal indictment charges seven members of two Minneapolis gangs with crimes stemming from what authorities say is a gang war with their rivals.

The seven face charges including conspiracy to possess firearms to further drug trafficking and conspiracy to distribute drugs. Two of the defendants were charged in a shooting outside Hennepin County Medical Center last August.

Officials say the defendants are active members of two street gangs known as the 10z and the 20z, which operated in south Minneapolis.

U.S. Attorney Andy Luger says it was the sixth violent street gang that his office had indicted since 2014.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1g5z3XU ) reports federal authorities say the 10z and the 20z were allegedly involved in a gang war with their primary rivals, the Bloods and the Bogus Boys.
