Pre-Dawn Raid: Culmination of 10-Month Investigation

MORE ON TODAY'S pre-dawn raid, with more than 500 officers arresting dozens of Avenues gang members, the culmination of a 10-month investigation, just across San Fernando Road from Atwater Village:
Several of the gang's members have been indicted for murder, drug trafficking, carjacking, home invasion robberies and witness intimidation.

Does this mean it's safe again for late-night tacos on Fletcher Drive?

From an email I got:

...there was a large scale, multi-agency enforcement action in the Drew Estara neighborhood this morning.

In connection with the enforcement action, there is community meeting planned for this evening at 6pm at the Glassell Park Community and Senior Center (3750 Verdugo Rd @Public Storage Building). Spread the word to your community members as you feel appropriate. There will be more information provided at the meeting, in addition to an opportunity to ask questions.
