Native Mob gang member pleads guilty to murderby Nancy Lebens, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — A member of the Native Mob pleaded guilty in federal court in Minneapolis Friday to killing a fellow gang member.
Shaun Martinez told the court he killed Jeremee Kraskey in Feb. 2011 to keep him from informing federal law enforcement about the gang's activities. The case against Martinez was part of a larger racketeering indictment with 25 defendants. Twenty people have pleaded guilty so far.
Federal authorities say the Native Mob sold crack cocaine and ecstasy, as well as intimidated witnesses to their crimes.
