Baltimore Police announced charges against several repeat offenders involved in gang-related crimes in the Edmondson Avenue area.

Police said the suspects are members of the EA Bloods, a BGF-related gang.

After a two-month investigation with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, nine people were indicted, eight of whom are currently in custody. Police said they hope to find the ninth victim by Tuesday night.

The Edmondson Avenue area in question has seen 47 aggravated assaults, 30 non-fatal shootings, 19 murders and 44 armed robberies since 2014.

Brandon Pride, the leader of the gang, was indicted on more than 30 charges.
