BRADENTON — Four gang members, including one carrying a gun and drugs, were arrested at the 13 AV Dream Center in Bradenton on Saturday, according to police.

Special police units were tipped off about a woman member of the street gang, SUR 13, on the property with a gun.

After police confronted her at 6:45 p.m., they charged her with possession of a concealed weapon on school property and possession of marijuana, according to a report.

Three juveniles, who allegedly tried to prevent police from arresting the woman, were also arrested at the Dream Center, which serves as an after-school site for many children. A man was shot to death there on Aug. 31.

Police later determined that all of the people arrested are members of SUR 13, according to the report.
