The Gangster Disciples are known to be quite active, lately, in Minneapolis. Since the 1960s, they have been enemies and rivals of the Almighty Black P-Stones, who are known as the "Moes" and have left a trail of death and destruction in North Minneapolis.
The suspect in the shootings has not yet been apprehended.
