HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — A judge rules that gang members are prohibited from entering one part of Houston.

KTRK-TV reports that a Harris County judge ruled that 16 gang members belonging to the Bloods, Crips and Most Wanted from entering a .7 square-mile area in Brays Oaks.

“These gangs are committing numerous criminal offenses in this area close to a school and residential areas,” Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan told KTRK.

One of the gang members banned from entering the Brays Oaks Safety Zone has been charged with killing three people, according to KHOU-TV.

These gang members “constitute a public nuisance to the citizens of the Brays Oak neighborhood,” Ryan told KHOU, adding that these gangs have made this area a “no man’s land.”

Brays Oaks residents called the judge’s ruling a victory.

“I think it’s needed for the safety of the community, for the kids,” Damon Jones told KTRK.

If any of the gang members are found in the banned area, they face up to a $4,000 fine and jail time.
