TRENTON, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — Members of the Get Money Boys, a violent street gang in Trenton, are facing serious criminal charges that could result in serious jail time for many of them. 

The New Jersey attorney general’s office announced 16 arrests Tuesday stemming from four shootings dating back to last September.

In all, one man was killed and a half-dozen others were wounded. Last February, members allegedly took shots at a police officer after fleeing the shooting of two people.

Officials say the gang deals in drugs. Search warrants executed in late May found almost 400 bricks of cocaine.

The alleged ringleader is identified as 27-year-old Charles Willis of Willingboro. His 47-year-old father, also named Charles, is among the 16 arrested. 

Authorities say the younger Willis ordered the murder of 32-year-old Michael Barnes and that 25-year-old Davion Fenderson of Trenton allegedly carried out the hit. All 16 are facing first-degree racketeering charges.
