NEW YORK (AP) - Law enforcers say they’ve made about 30 arrests in a New York City gang takedown.

WABC-TV (https://7ny.tv/1NkleV8 ) reports that the arrests are part of a yearslong investigation that targeted activities at East Harlem housing projects in upper Manhattan.

The neighborhood has seen a recent increase in gang activity, including a shooting that claimed the life of a teenager.

The suspects are accused of involvement in drug and firearms dealing.
