They say the group targeted bodegas and deliverymen in Castle Hill, Fordham, Bronxdale and Norwood, as well as parts of Westchester. Officials say the men used guns, knives and other weapons, and that a person was killed during one of the armed robberies. The suspects face life in prison if convicted.
