South San Francisco and Daly City law enforcement and city officials met Wednesday morning in downtown San Francisco to honor federal agents for their work in a gang raid in May.
US Customs and Immigration, as well as Homeland Security Investigations contributed to the , that resulted in 19 federal indictments of alleged C Street gang members. One of the defendants is Victor Flores, who is the suspected perpetrator of a triple homicide that occurred in South City in 2010.
In July, South City officials traveled to Los Angeles to honor three federal agents who were shot and injured during the raid in Petaluma.
The raid was part of a HSI's Operation Community Shield, which is an effort to erradic transnational street gangs throughout the US.
“Public recognition is always gratifying, but perhaps the greatest reward comes from knowing that our agents’ efforts have contributed to making these communities safer,” Clark Settles, special agent in charge for HSI San Francisco, said on Wednesday.
