The East Side (E/S) Pueblo Bishop Bloods are a long-standing African-American street gang located in South East Los Angeles, California within the LAPD's Newton Division and is headquartered in the Pueblo Del Rio housing project, but claim much of the surrounding area as their turf as well. Their territory lies between Slauson Avenue in the South to 50th Street in the North and between Alameda Street in the East and Compton Avenue in the West. Their territory is often referred to as the “Low Bottoms” because of the low numeric numbering of the residential streets. The East Side (E/S) 52 Pueblo Bishops are their main clique, indicating that this gang controls E 52 street and that the territory they control is within the Pueblo Del Rio housing project. In 1972, the 92 Be-Bop Watts Bishops was established by Bobby Lavender after his friend was shot and killed by the East Side Crips. The Pueblos have an alliance with the Be-Bop Watts Bloods referred to as the “Bebop Watts Bishop Bloods” alliance. By the late 1990s, they had also established a truce with the 52 Broadway Gangster Crips as well as the 53 Avalon Gangster Crips since all 3 gangs share a common enemy in the Blood Stone Villains; the Pueblo's longest and most bitter rivals [1]. This alliance has caused animosity amongst a large number of Blood gangs in South Los Angeles. Most Bloods find Blood-Crip alliances acceptable so long as the alliances are made to battle other Crips and not fellow Bloods. Due to this fact, the Pueblos have fallen out of favor with a number of their fellow Blood allies. The Pueblos are also rivals of the Mad Swan Bloods, 48 Gangster Crips, 42 Gangster Crips, 43 Gangster Crips, the 6 Pacc East Coast Crips and the Hispanic Varrio 38th Street. Police estimate The Pueblo Bishop gang has over 200 members and its primary activities included drug sales, robberies and shootings.
