Chicago Police Says Gang Involved In Hadiya Pendleton Murder Named After Lil Wayne Lyric

(AllHipHop News) The Chicago Police Department has announced that they are targeting the members of a gang called SUWU, in the aftermath of the murder of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton.

Hadiya Pendleton was the teenaged baton twirler who participated in Barack Obama’s most recent inauguration.

Pendleton was shot and killed on January 29, in Harsh Park, after being caught in the crossfire between two rival gangs.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago police are targeting the SUWU gang, whose members took their name from a Lil Wayne song.

Police acknowledge that the “Su Wu” saying was a greeting created by members of Los Angeles Bloods. But they also said that the Chicago gang used the saying as their name, yet had no relation to any other factions.

According to Chicago Police Department, the gang, which has about 40 members, took their name from Lil Wayne’s song “Promise.”

Two men have been arrested for the murder of Pendleton: Michael Ward and Kenneth Williams.

Police believe the SUWU gang was feuding with members of a gang called 4-6 Terror, since a member of that gang had shot Williams earlier in July.

Michael Ward, 18, is charged with being the trigger man in Hadiya Pendelton’s murder, while Williams, 20, allegedly acted as the getaway driver.

The Chicago police have vowed to target every member of the SUWU gang in the aftermath of her murder.

The department will launch a strategy called “group accountability,” which will allow officers to target every member of the gang for minor infractions, to violent offenses.
