Officials say the suspects were known members of the 150 Clan.
"The 150 Clan is a group of individuals that have been operating predominantly in the Nodine Hill area and engaging in the illegal sale of narcotics along with other acts of violence,” says Yonkers Commissioner Charles Gardiner.
According to police, the 150 Clan got its name from a bodega at the corner of 150 Elm St. in the heart of the Nodine Hill neighborhood where they all hang out.
