Echo Park & Silver Lake get a gang injunction

A Los Angeles judge on Tuesday approved a preliminary gang injunction against the Temple Street gang, which claims the southern edge of Silver Lake and Echo Park. Nearly 40 gang injunctions, which restrict the activities of gang members, have been used to in other parts of the city. This is the first gang injunction to cover Echo Park and Silver Lake. The Temple Street injunction names more than 250 members, which KCBS reports are subject to a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew and other restrictions within in a one-square-mile area:
