The Du Roc Crips, also known as the "Du Roc Gangster Crips", are a primarily, but not exclusively, African-American street gang located in the Duarte and Monrovia regions of the San Gabriel Valley in California. This gang originated in the 1970s and fall under the Gangster Crips card Trays(3x) umbrella, aligning themselves with all Gangster Crips. The Du Roc Crips consist of two cliques, known as the “Low-End” in the Duarte neighborhood between California Avenue and Mountain Avenue, south of Duarte Road and the "High-End" which is in Monrovia, in the areas between the 210 freeway and downtown Monrovia. The Du Roc Crips are the only African-American street gang in the Temple Station area, with a membership of 150, making them one of the largest Crip gangs in San Gabriel Valley. Their main rivals are the Hispanic Duarte East Side and Monrovia Nuevo Varrio, both of which claim territory adjacent to or inside the Du Roc territory. The rivalry with these gangs has resulted in numerous shootings, most notably the shooting of Cincinnati Bengals draft pick Dennis Weathersby in 2003 [1] and the fatal shooting of Samantha Salas in 2008 [2]. Other rivals include the Pasadena Denver Lane Bloods and the Azusa 13. Falling under the Tray (3x) card, the Du Roc Crips are friendly towards all Tray(3x) gangs such as the Eight Tray Gangster Crips, Trouble Gangster Crips, Altadena Blocc Crips, the Mad Ass Gangster Crips and the Whitsett Avenue Gangster Crips. In 2009, the Du Roc Crips was given an injunction, as well as Monrovia Nuevo Varrio, as a result of the shootings in 2008 [3].
