Two South Bend gang members have admitted their roles in a racketeering enterprise.
Alvin Blade the third, 21, and Jaleen McGee, 20, pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court.
Blade confessed to carrying and using a firearm during a violent drug trafficking crime. McGee admitted to racketeering.
The two men are among seven members of the South Bend-based Cash Out Boyz gang who were charged back in December with numerous violations of the Rico Act.
They're accused of dealing drugs along with a long list of violent acts, including multiple attempted murders and one murder.
Blade and McGee are the first to enter pleas in the case.
They're scheduled to be sentenced in mid-June.
