Prosecutors: 2 Hispanic gang members plotted to kill cops, rival gang leader

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Prosecutors in Milwaukee say two members of an Hispanic street gang plotted to kill the head of a rival gang and up to three Milwaukee police officers.

21-year-old Michael Geluk of Milwaukee and 24-year-old Gabriel Guerrero of West Allis are both charged with conspiracy to commit homicide.

Authorities said the alleged murder plot stemmed from an incident last August in which another man and a woman were shot and wounded.

As the police investigated, a witness who was a member of the La Familia gang said an officer disrespected her – and the officer was related to the rival gang leader who was targeted, Robert Lopez.

The next day, the female witness saw Lopez in a car parked nearby – and she assumed the officer would be with him.

Prosecutors said the La Familia members then plotted to kill the officer, plus another officer who had repeated contact with the gang, and perhaps a third officer. Officials said 3 gunmen were recruited to commit the murders at night, but none of them were charged.

Guerrero is due in court next week. Geluk has been found mentally incompetent to stand trial, and a judge will review a doctor’s report on Geluk’s health status in February.
