Two Native Mob gang members apprehended in Minnesota

Two members of the Native Mob gang, included the suspected leader, were arrested on Wednesday, a day after the U.S. Marshals Service in Minnesota released "wanted" posters for them.

Wakinyan Wakan McArthur, 33, and Christopher Lee Wuori, 24, were apprehended in Minneapolis. Both were taken in without incident.

Authorities believe McArthur is the leader of the gang. Experts say the Native Mob is one of the most violent in Indian Country.

The Department of Justice last week announced indictments against 24 gang members.
