Allies & Rivals
The Dodge City Crips have an alliance with the Harbor City Crips, due to their common rivalry with Latino gangs, especially the Rancho San Pedro Gang. The two gangs coexisted well in the Rancho San Pedro Projects, until 1996, when a Dodge City Crip member was murdered, allegedly the Rancho San Pedro Gang were behind the killing.
As a result, this incident led to fatal shootouts between the Dodge City Crips and Rancho San Pedro Gang. The animosity between these two gangs, escalated into racial motivated hate crimes. This bitter feud ended around 2006, with the Rancho San Pedro Gang dominating the Rancho San Pedro Projects.
However, the Dodge City Crips still reside in different parts of their neighborhood such as 2nd Street and 12th Street. They are rival of gangs, mainly in the Los Angeles Harbor Region, such as the East Pain Bloods, and the WaterFront Piru as well as the Carson West Side Piru and the Varrio Longos 13 and all the Varrio Wilmas street gangs, located in the city of Wilmington.
