The Du Roc Crips (3x) or Duroc Crips also known as Du Roc Gangster Crips, due to their affiliation with the Gangster Crips (3X) card. are primarily an African-American street gang located in the Duarte and Monrovia, regions of the San Gabriel Valley in California. The Du Roc Crips consist of two cliques, known as the “low-end” in the Duarte neighborhood, between California Ave and Mountain Ave, south of Duarte Road.

Their 2nd clique is known as the “high-end” located in the neighborhood of Monrovia, between the 210 (Foothill) freeway and downtown Monrovia, north of Duarte Road. The Low-end clique share their neighborhood with the Duarte East Side, a known Hispanic street gang. The “high-end” clique share their neighborhood with the Monrovia Nuevo Varrio, another Hispanic gang.

The Du Roc Crips originated in the 1970s, and fall under the Gangster Crips also known as Trays (3x) umbrella, aligning themselves with all Gangster Crips such as the notorious Eight Tray Gangster Crips, located in South Los Angeles. The Duroc Crips is the only black street gang in the Temple Station area, with a membership of 150, making them one of the largest crip gangs in the San Gabriel Valley.

The Du Roc Crips refer to Monrovia and Duarte as “Roc Town” and are known to sport article of clothing by the Detroit Lions, a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. However, the Du Roc Crips wear apparel of the Detroit Loins to signify their affiliation with the “Du” Roc Crips.

The Duroc Crips and the EastSide Duarte as well as the Monrovia Nuevo Varrio have a long history of racial motivated feuds. Which is traced back to a shooting that took place on August 9, 2006, when members of the East Side Duarte, drove by the home of Vincent Minor, an associate of the DuRoc Crips and open fire.

However, Minor’s 54-year-old father, Michael Minor, who was in the garage at the time of the shooting, a bullet penetrated through the garage, killing Minor’s father. The Duroc Crips retaliated less than five hours, killing a 22-year-old Latina female Nicole Kaster, was shot in the face. The intended target was Marcus Maturino, a member of the East Side Duarte.

On January 26, 2008, the Du Roc Crips made headlines with the tragic shooting death of Samantha Salas, a 16-year-old Latina, who was standing outside with a friend in front of the Riviera Apartments, located on the 2500 block of Peck Road in Monrovia. OnDecember 12, 2007, 24-years-old Hector Acosta, was shot and killed by two Du’roc Crips, while riding on his motorbike on Millbrae Ave. 

In 2007, three members of the Du Roc Crips were convicted of the attempted murder of a 48-year-old latina female, who was enjoying a peaceful weekend with her husband. Until she was interrupted by a knock at the door, but when she answered, she was greeted by a hail of bullets. The 48-year-old was shot in the shoulder, upper thigh and a bullet graze her chin as she fail to the floor. The victim was rushed to Huntington Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.

  1. cuh i like how the cheesees talk shit over facebook but are neva out…lmao i walk to the store off of buena vista all the time chunkin up the set all the way there and i live past walmart by the cemetary…..this lxw3nd Durxc crip 3x mxvin crip tray-p

  2. These Mestizos r freaking Lakers and Raiders fans. They have mostly Negroes on those teams. I will never get this DumbShyt and the fact these Mestizos luv saying Nigga but when y’all mad at us, we Niggers.Mexicans is a mixture of Indian and Spanish descent, a Mestizo.

  3. Do the du rocs beef with the villa boys from Pasadena? I was on the gold line the other day and I seen some ese from villa boys, nigga had a P tatted n his face, press on two niggas wearing all black. Anyways, them niggas said they were from du rocc and then all three seemed to be cool with each other. The ese said he thought they were from pdl.

    • I think they neutral with one another. DuRocs beef with MNV and Duarte Eastside cuz they rivals and right next to each other. They got no love for Azusa 13 cuz of all the racial shit they do to black folks. Villa Boys probaly a bit too far to for DuRocs to be beefin with on a regular basis, plus I think Villas Boys beef with PDL, DuRoc also beefs with PDL since they the two biggest crip/blood hoods in the sgv. So I would think DuRoc and Villa Boys are neutral.

      • Them niggas have to be cool. I was in the halls back in 2005 and 2006 out at central and there was some ese from villa boys named jakkie boy but would go by “Jakkie V”. Nigga was a cool ass ese, wasn’t with that racist shit and would push “Treyteen”. Du Rocs and the Altadena Bloccs are Treys. Them niggas from lanes would be woofing and the nigga would just be calm and line it up with them. Dude was low key serving them too.

  4. I hope my generation can overcome pointless gang violence here in Duarte, Blacks and Mexicans both love their families. We need to unite, this killing just because the color of your skin is poi tless and its exactly what the white man wants, In the end were all brothers we all want the same thing, we’re stronger together, think about your kids future

    • niggers have no family structure in the ghetto. The typical black family is a woman on welfare with 6 kids from 6 different fathers.
      The kids are all uneducated and into some kind of petty street crime. I got news for you, mexicans hate niggers. It has nothing to do with the color of someone’s skin, it’s the low character of the nigger that is the problem. Mexicans and niggers are not brothers and never will be. niggers hate other niggers. That’s the reality of it.

      • You seem fuckin stupid and uneducated your damn self you probably can’t even say what you said online in public in front of blacks pussy

      • Whoever made that comment about Niggers having no family structure and about how Mexicans generally hate Niggers is 100% correct. Everything he said is right on the money including the mothers having 6 kids with 6 different Nigger men. How fucking true. Maybe this is why these Niggers have this MOTHER FIXATION and are always trying to say something about someone else’s mother ( who they don’t even know)?
        Could explain a lot. Deep down inside, the Nigger is ashamed of his black mama so he has to lash out against someone else’s mother even though he doesn’t even know her. Very interesting. LOL
