Thirty-three reputed gang members have been arrested in raids by Chicago police, state and federal officials.

Investigators say they are part of a violent gang that traffics in heroin and cocaine.

"They operated a violent criminal enterprise and they are responsible for at least three murders," said CPD Superintendent Garry McCarthy.

McCarthy says the leader of the gang is among those arrested.
