SUFFOLK --18-year old Aaron Green and 18-year old Quashawn House are charged with assault, drugs, guns and gang paraphernalia possession.

Suffolk Police Department's Neighborhood Enforcement Team or NET arrested the teenagers on Thursday while executing search warrants in the Lake Kennedy neighborhood.

Over the weekend, Green was additionally charged with prohibited criminal street gang participation; on August 22, House was charged with that same crime.

NET targets gang activity throughout the city.

'We'll target one gang and they'll kind of fall off for a little bit and then another one will pop up,' said Sergeant TA Smith of Suffolk Police, who heads the NET for the south part of Suffolk.

Neighbors in the Lake Kennedy community tell us they've heard gunshots at night and fear for their own safety because of the gang activity.

Officers say they found a stolen West Virginia police officer's gun in Quashawn House's possession and more charges against him are pending.
