The notorious Bloods and Crips gangs are again being targeted by Harris County.

The county is asking a judge to order an injunction to bar 54 Bloods and Crips members from the east Aldine safety zone. This zone includes two schools along with several apartments, restaurants, retail stores and a residential community.

"They're not welcome there. We're telling them don't come in because their history and evidence shows that all they do is cause problems," said Celena Vinson with the Harris County Attorney's Office.

Harris County did obtain a similar court order last year for the Brays Oaks Community.
