Mason Jr. Sentenced Today, Others Await Trial for Murder and Robbery

imgresDARRELL MASON JR. will join other Vic Boys criminal street gang members and associates in Ohio State prison after Mahoning County Judge Maureen Sweeney sentenced MASON JR.  to a 10-year prison term today.

The gang was involved in street level drug trafficking, burglaries, robberies, felonious assaults, murders, and other gun violence in and around the Victory Estates neighborhood of East Youngstown.  In 2012, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force began investigating a drug trafficking organization that included known members of the Vic Boys criminal street gang. The group was targeted because of neighborhood tips detailing their ongoing criminal activity and because the group has been a known catalyst for violence in Youngstown.

Based on information gathered through this investigation by the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force and the Mahoning County Prosecutor’s Office, Tijuan Muldrow and Willie Daniels were indited for the 2012 Murders of Ibn Shakoor and Michael Johnson in the Victory Estates neighborhood.  In addition, a juvenile was charged with a March 13, 2013 Felonious Assault and Aggravated Robbery also in the Victory Estates neighborhood. All three men are awaiting trial.
