Photograph caption dated March 27, 1945 reads, "Police officers are shown on the way to court with a group of youths who assertedly took part in a gang war in which a 17-year-old boy suffered bullet and stab wounds. The youth were scheduled for arraignment today." The four youths, shown being led to a Sheriff's transportation vehicle are Ajejandro De la Loza, Armando Cendejas, Jose Alanzo Montalvo, and Gregory Gonzalez. The victim was Manuel Gonzalez. According to the accompanying Los Angeles Herald and Express article, "The clash assertedly was the outgrowth of a feud which began about three weeks ago between the so-called 'Marianas' and 'Third Street' gangs."
