PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - Pendleton police say they’ve identified 20 members of a white supremacist gang in Eastern Oregon and have filed charges against a number of them. The charges include assault and conspiracy to commit murder.

Chief Stuart Roberts tells the East Oregonian (https://bit.ly/15PnfUv) that officers are nearing the end of an effort to arrest those considered the most dangerous in the United Aryan Empire.

Roberts says the organization has roots in a prison gang, and gang conflict is behind a large fight in October and gunshots aimed at houses late last year.

He says police have arrested seven people, including one member of a Latino gang. Warrants are out for two more people, and police expect at least one more indictment.
