NYPD Increases Presence Over Gang Initiation Fears
Description:The worst incident of gang “wilding” in Times Square happened three years ago on Easter Sunday night.
Two women were shot during a brawl and several police officers were injured.
More than 50 people were arrested in what has become an unofficial gang initiation night among the city’s crews.
Typically it takes place after the New York International auto show at the Javits Center. This Times Square street vendor remembers a chaotic Easter night in 2010.(1:41)
