The unsolved murders of four young men in Jersey City were cracked with the arrests of more than a dozen alleged gang members in a sweep by the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office. Police say the murder victims -- one as young as 15 -- were killed during disputes in Jersey City over the past year.

Eyewitness News is told more than a dozen people, many of them reportedly gang members, were taken into custody during a sweep Wednesday.

They were charged with murder, drug and weapons possession. Authorities are reportedly looking for more who eluded capture.
