LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested two men they say are connected to a notorious gang.  They are some of the city's most hardened criminals and police requested a high bond to prevent a quick release from jail.

Norman Parker and Norman Williams were arrested for gun charges after shots were fired near 22nd and Kentucky across from Victory Park.

"It looked like they were mobilizing to retaliate against someone in response to the shots fired that we responded to in the park," Kit Steimle with Louisville Metro Police Department's VIPER unit said.

"They are two of the five Victory Park gang members in the last six months that we have recovered guns off in the last 6 months," Steimle said.

Parker has been linked to the high profile murder of Central High School cheerleader of LaKnogony McCurley in 2000.

Parker's brother is Kenneth Parker who is serving a life sentence the murder. Kenneth Parker was said to be the leader of the Crips.
