The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Hammond will announce another gang-related indictment Friday, according to a release.

The indictment, which will be announced at a press conference at the East Chicago Police Department, involves more racketeering charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office has targeted several local gangs in recent years, filing racketeering charges against members of the Latin Kings, Imperial Gangsters and the Two-Six street gangs.
