More than 100 members of three feuding gangs were arrested in Harlem for killings and gun violence on Wednesday in what was described as the largest indictment of gang members in New York City's history, authorities said.

The arrests and indictments were part of a conspiracy investigation that stemmed from the 2011 murder of Tayshana Murphy, an 18-year-old high-school basketball star, a person familiar with the investigation said. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the sweep have not yet been officially released.

Although two young men have already been convicted for Murphy's murder, investigators broadened their inquiry into a pattern of violence they said were plaguing the neighborhood in upper Manhattan.

The gangs are accused of two homicides, 19 non-fatal shootings and about 50 other shooting incidents, according to a brief announcement from the Manhattan district attorney.
