NBC is reporting that the City Attorney's office has gotten a temporary injunction forbidding members of the 5th & Hill gang from congregating throughout a large chunk of Downtown. The area listed includes Skid Row and the Historic Core.

The gang was the target of a massive investigation by LAPD that last year led to thirty-one arrests and the seizure of 80 pounds of heroin. More recently tags for the gang have begun to reappear around Downtown.

The pictured tag on 7th street has been up since late last year, and sits just below the 85 year old ad for Goodman department store.
