BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A Bridgeport jury found two gang members guilty of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and four counts each of first-degree assault for killing one man and wounding three teenagers two years ago, the Connecticut Post reported.

Raashon “Red Dreads” Jackson, 24, and Roderick “Little Ricky” Rogers, 20, were involved in a feud between their own Ave Set gang and a gang out of the Trumbull Gardens housing project, according to the Post. On Sept. 10, 2013, Rogers and Jackson fired into a crowd of people at the housing complex, killing LaChristopher “50” Pettway, 26, and wounded a 19-year-old and two 15-year-olds, the Connecticut Post said.

When sentenced Dec. 10, each man could be sentenced to over 100 years in prison, according to the story.
