Montgomery and Prince Georges counties in Maryland are launching a joint task force targeting gangs. Nearly $3 million in federal money will help fund the initiative.
Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) says gangs know no borders, and efforts at stopping them shouldn't either. The money comes from a one-time federal grant.
Montgomery County state's attorney John McCarthy says the task force will focus on schools, where many gangs recruit new members.
