A county judge Wednesday granted a permanent injunction against two Harbor Gateway street gangs, prohibiting members from associating in public.
Superior Court Judge Michael Stern granted the injunction against the 204th Street and East Side Torrance gangs. Both gangs have histories of racially motivated attacks against blacks, authorities say.
Earlier this year, two East Side Torrance gang members fired into a car occupied by a black family, hitting a 6-year-old boy in the head.
City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo began assembling the case for an injunction after two members of the 204th Street gang allegedly shot Cheryl Green, a black girl, in December of 2006.
Green, 14, was shot and killed while standing on a street in her Harbor Gateway neighborhood.
