MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted several people alleged to be Gangster Disciples gang members in connection with the attempted killings of five teenagers in Memphis.

It accuses 35-year-old Ranito Allen, 36-year-old Florence Anthony, 38-year-old Edwin Carvin, 30-year-old Brandon Milton and 35-year-old Erik Reese, all of Memphis, with five counts of attempted murder in aid of racketeering and other offenses. The officials said 29-year-old Candies Wesley of Memphis was charged with being an accessory after the fact of attempted murder in aid of racketeering.

Officials said Monday that another alleged gang member, 33-year-old Robert Mallory, was charged previously and remains charged in the superseding indictment.

The defendants are accused of participating in the June 2014 attempted killings for entrance or position in the gang.
