The gang had named themselves the Get Money Team, which they abbreviated down to the acronym GMT. This gang was an amalgamation of male juvenile offenders, some as young as 12 years old. Their entire goal was to get money…now. Despite the young age of the members of GMT, they were carjacking women at gunpoint. Their modus operandi was to target unsuspecting women at trapped at stoplights, point a firearm at them, which would provide them with a temporary advantage due to the understandable shock, and then rip the women from their cars and drive away. They would occupy the car long enough to get the valuables out of the purse or car, and then abandon it.
