After several gang-related shootings over the past few weeks, Wichita police officers have announced a new initiative aimed at catching the city's most-wanted gang members.
Lt. Scott Heimerman of the department's gang unit has released pictures of the top 10 most wanted gang members. He hopes that by taking them into custody, it will help prevent more gang violence from erupting.
Heimerman says there are more than 1,000 documented active gang members in Wichita. He also said that two shootings, one at 15th and Green and another at 11th and Mosley, are gang-related.
If you have information on the two cases or the whereabouts of any of the men below, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111. You could be eligible for a cash reward.
