A seven-month investigation into street gang activity in the South Bay has led several agencies to round up at least 25 suspects this morning. (This is an ongoing police operation that has netted nearly 100 arrests, in toto. A previous version of this story mistook that number for this morning's arrests.)

Gilroy Police, Santa Clara County district attorney, federal Drug Enforcement Agency and the California Department of Justice are rounding up criminal gang members and their associates this morning.

The investigation included Gilroy, Morgan Hill, Hollister and San Jose, according to a news release. Violations allegedlly included "shooting into an inhabited dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon (firearm), assault with a deadly weapon (vehicle), robbery, criminal conspiracy, narcotic violations, witness intimidation and the use of juvenile offenders to commit crimes to benefit a criminal street gang."
