FILE - In this Oct. 19, 2016 file photo, Rapper Bobby Shmurda, whose birth name is Ackquille Pollard, second from left, appears with his lawyer Alex Spiro, left, in a Manhattan court in New York where Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in prison on charges he conspired with a drug gang in several shootings. When a street gang best known for its affiliation with Shmurda turned a Brooklyn neighborhood into a shooting gallery two years ago, New York City police responded with a scalpel instead of an occupying force. It used data to identify and arrest the worst offenders and, working with prosecutors, got them locked up longer - a strategy they claim has brought calm to the neighborhood and helped drive down shootings by 11 percent citywide.
