Four shootings linked to Burger Bar Boys V Johnson Crew feud
A court case has shone a light on the turf war between two north Birmingham gangs.
The Burger Bar Boys, based predominantly in the Handsworth area, and the Johnson Crew, based around the Aston area, have been rivals for decades.
Yesterday two members of the Burger Bar Boys were sentenced to a total of 36 years for their part in running gun battles.
During the trial which led to their convictions the prosecution suggested four separate city shootings involved the two gangs.
