CHICAGO — Eleven members of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang are facing charges, including nine who were responsible for the murders of six people in three years, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
The Four Corner Hustlers operated largely in West Garfield Park, Humboldt Park and LeClaire Courts, according to a U.S. Attorney's Office news release. The men murdered and shot people; dealt heroin, cocaine and marijuana; robbed rivals and tried to keep opponents and witnesses from working with police through violence and threats, officials said.
The charges come after a "lengthy investigation" by the Chicago Police Department and federal agencies, prosecutors said.
Nine of the men are charged with racketeering conspiracy. They were also responsible for the murders of six people between January 2000 and June 2003, officials said.
Labar Spann, 38, was involved in all six murders, and he was helped in five of them by members of the racketeering conspiracy, officials said.
Jasper Davidson, Jonathon Roy and Justin Cook also were involved with the racketeering conspiracy, though they died before they could be charged, officials said.
Two other men are charged with participating in an extortion conspiracy.

• Labar Spann, aka "Bro Man"
