New Gang Violence: Norteño vs. Norteño

El Mensajero, Posted: Oct 02, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO -- Recent killings in San Franciso's Mission District reflect a new kind of gang violence in the area, reports El Mensajero. Unlike past violence, which was attributed to conflicts between the rival gangs Norteños and Sureños, or the 2008 feud that was linked to the Salvadoran gang Mara Salvatrucha, recent violence is believed to be the result of an internal split among the Norteños. According to Lieutenant James Spillane, the Norteños have divided the San Francisco neighborhood into east and west, with Folsom Street serving as the dividing line. The western group is believed to operate around the intersection of Shotwell and 24th Street, while the eastern group operates near Potrero Street.
