The four men are being held in the custody of federal marshals.

Two Fort Wayne men and two from Bloomington face federal charges alleging the attempted murders of three people and other crimes.

U.S. Attorney for David Capp announced an 18-count indictment Thursday against 22-year-old Demetri D. Beachem, and 24-year-old William D. Beamon, both of Fort Wayne, and Kyombe D. Bolden and 24-year-old Ronnie D. Burrus, both of Bloomington. Bolden’s age was unavailable.

The indictments allege that the men were associated with the so-called 2500 street gang based in Fort Wayne.

Court records show Beachem, Beamon and Bolden were arrested Tuesday and made initial court appearances Wednesday. Their arraignments are scheduled for Friday. They’re being held in the custody of federal marshals.

Messages seeking comment were left for the three men’s attorneys.
