Last summer, a judge issued an injunction against the Hidden Valley Kings in north Charlotte.

That made Mecklenburg the first county in the state to implement a new law that allows judges to order suspected gang members not to associate with each other in public, possess a gun or be near anyone carrying drugs or firearms.

Two suspected gang members have now been found guilty of violating the injunction.

Mecklenburg County is the first in North Carolina to invoke a new law that allows police departments to prevent gang members from associating with each other in public or being near someone who is carrying drugs or guns.

A judge Thursday morning granted CMPD's request for a civil injunction against a north Charlotte gang called the Hidden Valley Kings.
