The Gooch Close Gang
Eleven members of a criminal network that brought gun-related murder and mayhem to the streets of Manchester for 20 years face lengthy jail terms after they were convicted in one of Britain biggest-ever gang trials. Colin Joyce, 29, and Lee Amos, 32, the leaders of the notorious Gooch Gang, were yesterday found guilty of the drive-by murder of a mourner at the funeral of a man that Joyce had executed weeks earlier. They were convicted alongside nine of their fellow Gooch members and will now be jailed for life. Their removal from the streets of the city has been claimed as a victory by Greater Manchester Police who point to the fact that fatal shootings have decreased 92 per cent since Joyce and Amos were arrested. Those arrests related to the murders of Ucal Chin, 24, and Tyrone Gilbert, 23, who were shot dead in separate drive-by shootings in because of their apparent links to the Longsight Crew or the Doddington Gang, the Gooch Gang's rivals.
