(AP) — Hundreds of federal and local law enforcement fanned out across Los Angeles, serving arrest and search warrants as part of a three-year investigation into the violent and brutal street gang MS-13.

The FBI is heading the probe.

Agents and officers served warrants early Wednesday at 41 locations, including a storefront along a strip of dilapidated buildings near downtown. The targets included some members of the gang’s leadership.

The operation is the latest step in a multi-agency anti-racketeering case.

MS-13 has become a primary target of the Justice and Homeland Security departments amid the Trump Administration’s broader effort to crack down on illegal immigration and violent crime.
