New Orleans police say a wanted gang member turned herself in Friday.

Detectives say Ja’on Jones was one of two gang members still wanted in what’s being called the biggest gang case in New Orleans history.

Joshua Pittman is the remaining wanted suspect.

Thursday District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro announced the indictments and the arrests of the first 13 suspects.

Prosecutors say the gang was involved in murders, robberies and drugs.

They say 5-year-old Briana Allen was a victim of the gang’s violence.

She was killed after getting caught in the crossfire of a Central City shooting last year.
