Herrera has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon for the benefit of a criminal street gang, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records.
Los Angeles police have also noticed an increase in graffiti from West Burbank gang members in an area that their Glendale rivals claim as their territory, prompting concerns at the L.A.P.D. Northeast Division, said Lt. Steven Flores.
“Tagging leads to increased violence,” he said.
Despite the recent flare-ups, Flores pointed out that police have seen gang activity around the Glendale and Los Angeles border drop significantly since both cities united to obtain the gang injunction.
