Final alleged member of New Orleans 110'ers gang surrenders to police



New Orleans Police say the last alleged member of the 110'ers gang turned himself in to authorities on Saturday.

Police say Joshua "Josh" Pittman was the only remaining gang member at large after Ja'on Jones surrendered at Central Lock-Up with her attorney Friday evening.
 
Both Pittman and Jones were among 15 people accused in part of a racketeering indictment announced Thursday.

Officials say it was the most sweeping gang indictment in New Orleans history.

Members of the 110'ers gang were wanted in connection with a slew of violent crimes, believed to have included at least 10 killings. Among those was that of 5-year-old Brianna Allen.
 
Allen was killed by gunfire while playing at her cousin's birthday party on Simon Bolivar last spring. 33-year-old Shawanna Pierce was also killed in the May 2012 Central City shooting.

Last week's 51-count racketeering indictment against members of the 110'ers gang accused them of "terrorizing the citizens of New Orleans."
