Police have also described the stabbing death of Levi King Flores as possibly gang-related. The 17-year-old died Jan. 13 after an afternoon street fight. A 13-year-old faces a manslaughter charge in Flores' death.
La Eme and BBK members were involved in that fight, according to numerous community sources. Police braced for retaliation, but the streets were quiet until Sunday night's stabbing. The 20-year-old is expected to live and told police he could probably identify his attackers.
