Jury convicts leading Minneapolis gang figure in gun-buying operation


A prominent member of a Minneapolis street gang has been convicted of two felonies in connection with a gun-buying operation that fueled deadly street violence for years over illicit-drug turf on the North Side.

Veltrez “Chief” Black, 26, one of 11 people indicted in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis last fall, was found guilty by jurors of two firearms-related felonies, the U.S. attorney’s office announced Friday. The other 10 have all pleaded guilty.
