- 1940's (28th ST)
In 1942 racial tensions kept rising after the Harper case when American servicemen were stationed in Southern San Andreas. They perceived the zoot suiters as unpatriotic, many of the Marines and Sailors were from different parts of the country and had little to no knowledge of Mexican-American culture. Violence soon erupted which led to the Zoot Suit riots of 1943, chaos erupted all over Los Santos bringing grief to the Hispanic community. Mexican-American youths were not only targeted for the their ethnicity but also the clothing they wore. They were harassed, humiliated, beaten and arrested.
After the riots subsided, many Mexican-American youths were still being targeted by the predominantly white police force. Instead of pressuring the youths to change their ways they forced the community to band together and become stronger. The 28th street gang arose from the ashes of the riots and became stronger. The coming years weren't any easier, El Corona suffered many transformations in the time to come. 28th street gang evolved and kept evolving, a never ending cycle with new generations rising and falling.
- 1950's-1970's (Los Locotes)
Throughout the 1950's the 28th street gang developed a more criminal state of mind and named itself 'Los Locotes', as they were described by the grandmother of one local youth. Her description of the gang was an effort to distance the young man from the gang life.
Cesar Reyes' reign was peaceful until the rise of the Seis Puntos street gang, who in 1964 murdered Cesar Reyes in a drive-by shooting at the Unity Station; the reason was unknown, but it didn't matter to Los Locotes. For five years the war between Locotes and the Seis Puntos gang took its toll on more than 35 people from both sides, civilians were often caught in the crossfire. The most notable murder was that of Enrique 'Rique' Galvan, a beloved Locotes member who was gunned down at the Idlewood gas station. A graffiti mural of Galvan which dates to 1968 can still be seen near the El Corona apartment complex to this day, it is maintained regularly by local graffiti artists.
After the victory over the Seis Puntos gang and the death of Cesar Reyes, local gang members in El Corona with no real leadership or guidance became involved in Heroin trafficking. Most of them became users themselves, spreading the Heroin epidemic into the tight-knit community of Little Mexico. The influx of heavy narcotics and its use by local gang members resulted in an extreme behavioral change in the gang's attitude, they suddenly became more hostile and violent. In 1969, several Locotes members headed by veteran Cesar 'Ranza' Esperanza robbed the Los Santos city bank and killed 3 hostages in the process; most Locotes were killed by SWAT forces except for Ranza who managed to escape but was arrested again in 1971 for the attempted robbery and shooting of popular TV news reporter Aleksei Kruschev, the shooting occured live on national television.
After the bust, Locotes veteran Joey 'Maldito' Cortez stepped up and took responsibility over the gang claiming to be the 'Jefe', now having the last word in the neighborhood. No one protested and everyone seemed to be happy with Maldito's way of conduct. His reign was the longest but is remembered as violent due to many conflicts; many started by Maldito himself against rival gangs. Soon Los Locotes became the most hated and powerful gang in South-East Los Santos.
Shortly after Maldito's rise to power, he sent Locotes member Roque 'Rock' Cadero to Las Colinas to recruit members for a north LS clique, it was named Hillside Locotes but it was soon to be disbanded due to political issues, the murder of Rock Cadero in county jail by incarcerated Locotes members culminated in the clique's demise.
In 1975 that once scrawny 19 year old Locote was released from San Quentin as a full pledged Mexican Mafia member, he helped found the now Mexican Mafia Heroin distribution trade, supplying the drug to Locotes gang members and encouraging them to sell it on his behalf. This Heroin-distribution crew had the best earning individuals in the neighborhood and they were soon to be flashing expensive cars, clothes and cars, of course money was kicked up to Eme for their services.
From 1950 and 20 years ahead, Los Locotes made its development from a dysfunctional neighborhood band of thugs to a vicious gang of murderous hell-raising cholos with a reputation to match.
- 1980's-1990's (SSL)
The infamous prison gang, the Mexican Mafia intervened and set guidelines for the El Corona gang. El Corona was a territory entitled only to Juan Fortuna by the Mexican Mafia and he kept other Eme figures from interference with the gang. He also made sure the gang was not taxed by anyone else, leaving Locotes to run their own operations on behalf of Fortuna.
Locotes stayed alive and dominated for years to come, working the drug trade in the area. Ethnic cleansing in El Corona wasn't new but Locotes took it to an extreme. Violent clashes with rival gangs, mainly African-Americans led to a large police presence. Despite his criminal record, Maldito was recruited into the US Army and deployed to the invasion of Grenada, he stepped down from his role as leader. Power over the gang's operations was given to Felipe Alvarez for the time being. Lipe Alvarez and Grifo Deradoz were the only two individuals to ever become shot-callers, running the gang as a whole.
Around the late 90's Grifo Deradoz was killed by Alvarez for bringing too much heat on the gang, senseless murdering of innocent people including his wife Catalina, that culminated Grifo's death sentence. Despite his final reigning days of terror, Grifo's name and fame lives on even after his death.
In the late 1990's Felipe semi-retired from the gang, he started to get involved in Eme affairs as the shot caller and representative of Locotes. He divided the gang to the El Corona clique and the Unity clique, each controlled by Enrique Fortuna and Ramon Torres respectively. Meanwhile, local Eme figures forced their control over the gang and started collecting taxes and supplying the gang with guns and drugs. During this time Oliver 'Biggs' Suarez was killed by an Eme associate for expressing his doubt in the organization, spreading fear among the gangs. Local Mexican Mafia figures inducted Alvarez into the organization, Ramon Torres was also made an Eme carnal by 'Puppet' Martinez of 18th street; leaving Enrique Fortuna as the sole leader and undisputed shot caller of the Locotes gang.
Police stared a major operation to shut the gang down, soon after a gang injunction was issued and all known members of the Locotes gang were prohibited from furthering gathering in public. Enrique Fortuna who was acquitted for technical reasons, now resides in San Jose alone, there are no updates regarding his present status, it is known the Fortuna family has since cut ties with Enrique. Without the Locotes being able to further their criminal activities, the gang went defunct. From these roots came to be the new era of baby gangsters in El Corona.
- Mid to late 2000's
Their hostile and superior mentality led to several altercations with the Mexican Mafia. Corona Varrio Tortilla Flats was then greenlit by the Mexican Mafia for claiming to be tax-free and murdering an Eme associate.
More than 15 members of the CVTF gang were murdered in state prisons for crossing the Mexican-Mafia,t hey are known as 'The Greenlight Generation'. Yet their superior behavior led them down many wars with rival gangs. They ultimately targeted the second largest Hispanic gang in Los Santos, the Mara Salvatruchos. The war sparked a blood feud causing both gangs to expand in numbers, violence erupted in the southern and central parts of town. Better days were far gone, the two gangs were pitted against one another with no end in sight. Ultimately the government took action, police cracked down on both gangs and put and end to the feud. Members from both sides ended up dead or in prison due to their state of affairs.
A small pocket of minorities in EC attempted to take control of the drug trade left behind. It wasn't long before the scattered Hispanic youths banded together in an effort to regain respect in the area. Pee Wee Gangsters was formed out of respect for the older era of Locote generations, they took on the task to protect the Sureno assets in El Corona. Violent, racist, blatant with no remorse they set out to ethnically cleanse the neighborhood. Pee Wee Gangsters quickly earned their reputation but their numbers weren't to compare with major gangs in town. Pee Wee Gangster's ultimately bit off more than they could chew and quickly found themselves in too deep, gang violence not only directed towards rival gangs but towards Eme affiliates. The Pee Wees were greenlit for claiming to be tax-free at some point. All operations ceased to exist, most members either fled or were killed.
