Todays sentencing brings to a successful conclusion a very violent and tragic episode in our community, said U.S. Attorney William Hochul in a statement. These defendants will never again inflict further violence on the residents of Western New York. This case is also a great example of the cooperative efforts of our Office working closely with our law enforcement partners at all levels. We will continue to pursue members of other violent criminal organizations with the same vigor until such gangs are no more.
