Profile of a Gang Member

Amid the recent violence in Boston, police are investigating possible gang connections to some of the 12 murders this year. The increase in shootings, and the approaching summer, have turned attention back onto the streets, especially in areas identified as the city's high crime "hot spots."

WBUR's David Boeri has been living near one of those neighborhoods in Dorchester for the past several weeks. And today, he profiles one young man who has a lot to say about gang life.

This program aired on March 28, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
