A Greenburgh murder attempt is among several crimes charged to alleged members of an organized gang accused of committing assault, racketeering, conspiracy to commit murder and other violent crimes while selling cocaine in Westchester, the Bronx, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, according to authorities.

Queens residents David Cherry, 35, also known as "Showtime," and Thomas Morton, 40, also known as "10 Stacks," are accused of shooting another suspected gang member, Saeed "O-Dog" Kaid, 36, in Greenburgh, on April 3, 2009, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

The men, all alleged to belong to the Blood Hound Brims gang, also known as "BHB" or the "Gang," were involved in an internal power struggle, Bharara said, adding that the gang is a subset of the Bloods.

Kaid survived the shooting, Bharara said before adding that similar gang violence occurred multiple times in the Bronx several years later.

Cherry and Morton, two of 13 alleged gang members named in a series of indictments unsealed Wednesday in federal court, are each facing counts of racketeering conspiracy, narcotics conspiracy and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence or drug trafficking crime, according to Bharara.

Kaid faces counts of racketeering conspiracy, assault, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, narcotics conspiracy and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence or drug trafficking crime, according to Bharara.
