BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - It was back in January when we first showed you surveillance video of people ducking for cover as a gunman opened fire at an NFTA Bus. We now know that shooting wasn't random.
Investigators say it was the work of a notorious east side gang , that police busted up Wednesday. Federal agents busted "The Bailey Boys," now seven of their alleged most violent members are locked up, facing a slew of charges.
According to US Attorney Bill Hochul, "The Bailey Boys" have a violent past. Hochul said, "Over a 10-month period of time in 2011, members of The "Bailey Boys" committed no less than eight attempted murders, two of those attempts actually resulted in the death of their victims."
The 24-count indictment not only accuses Tyrone Brown of being in the gang, but also of shooting and killing Harold McCain, in January of 2011. The indictment also connects Brown to the 2011 shooting death of Kevin Wilkins. Both were in the area the Bailey Boys fought to control.
Hochul said, "We indeed have a portrait of mass murderers operating again on the streets of our city. This kind of conduct will not be tolerated."
Transit Police Chief George Gast also announced that "The Bailey Boys" are connected to the January 2012 shooting where one man fired into an NFTA bus at Bailey and Kensington Avenues.
If convicted, the seven suspects could face life in federal prison. One could even face the death penalty. They're each due back in federal court next week.
