Long Island gang members, who like to brag about being “Everybody Killers,” have unleashed a reign of terror that has included shooting outside Rep. Lee Zeldin’s home and even stealing French bulldogs to fund their crimes, authorities said Monday With.
The alleged teenage trigger of the Zeldin shooting, Noah Green, is among 18 alleged members of the gang named in a 148-count indictment unsealed by Suffolk District Attorney Raymond Tierney and the road crew on murder, attempted murder charges , auto theft and larceny.
Green, 18, was charged in the Zeldin shooting on November 7, but only on gun possession charges.
Authorities said the gang called themselves “No Fake Love” or “NFL” and that many of its members belonged to the notorious Bloods and Crips gangs.
They “praise themselves as ‘Everybody Killers,'” the prosecutor’s office said in a press release.
“True to their nickname ‘Everybody Killers,’ members and associates of the NFL have allegedly participated in and agreed to commit criminal acts, including but not limited to murder, armed robbery, armed carjacking, theft, and shootings against rival gang members as innocent civilians.” , the statement said.
The gang terrorized Mastic, Shirley, Bellport and Riverhead and took orders from two jailed gang leaders, officials said.
Authorities said their investigation will begin in October 2021 and will cover 31 separate incidents, including six shootings, six armed robberies, the theft of 15 vehicles including a Mercedes and two BMWs – and the murder of a man in December 2021.
The victim, Jorge Mauricio Sevilla Barrera, made the fatal mistake of getting into a fight with one of the gang members and his accomplice in the parking lot of Minx nightclub in Farmingville.
“This large-scale takedown used precision policing to target violent drivers responsible for serious crimes devastating Suffolk County communities,” Suffolk County Police Chief Rodney Harrison said in a statement Monday.
The charges also come after the October 9 gang-related shooting outside Zeldin’s home in Shirley, which left two men wounded – and his teenage daughters running for cover.
Police said the two victims of the shooting fled to Zeldin’s front yard when they were shot at, hitting one of the 17-year-olds in the chest and grazing the other’s arm.
Green faces attempted murder charges in the case, authorities said Monday.
He had been driving past Zeldin’s home in a stolen 2022 Honda CRV when he spotted three rival gang members and shot them through the driver’s window, hitting two of them in the chest, according to authorities.
“The victims survived the shooting,” prosecutors said in a press release. “Afterward, Green bragged about confiding the shooting to other gang members.”
Green even posted a picture to social media proudly showing off their handguns, police officers said.
Zeldin, a Republican who lost his attempt to unseat Gov. Kathy Hochul on Election Day, condemned the incident as a symptom of lax crime laws in the Empire State.
“Crime is out of control,” he said in a statement after the shooting. “Like so many New Yorkers, crime has literally found its way to our front door.
“There was blood on the rock just off the porch.”
Some of the gang members also ambushed a Lyft driver in Wading River in April – with two of them pointing their guns at the terrified driver’s head while repeating, “Shoot him!” officials said.
One of the fiends laughed at the victim during the gruesome encounter, dashcam video shows.
In the end, the criminals threw the driver out of the car and sped away.
Gang members also hijacked a Mercedes from its owner after pointing a gun to her head in Wantagh in May, authorities said.
Also, on July 24, three members of the “NFL” stole seven French bulldogs, including six puppies, from a home in Suffolk County. While the mother was cured, the puppies were not.
“These defendants have been involved in murder, shootings, robberies, carjacking and the recovery of eight loaded firearms that have placed all of our communities in grave danger,” Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said in a statement.
Ten of the accused were taken into custody Thursday, authorities said. Seven were already in custody, including Green. An indicted suspect remains at large.
In addition to the district attorney’s office, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, the Suffolk County Police Department, the US Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Nassau County Police Department were involved in the investigation, authorities said.
