GotNews.com has learned that Andrew J. Neal, 43, the suspect in the targeted shooting of MN police officer Jordan Davis, is a longtime member of the Mickey Cobras street gang.
The “Mickey Cobras” AKA the “Almighty Mickey Cobra Nation” is a large, predominantly Black gang that is heavily influenced by Islam and uses Muslim ideology throughout its constitution and by-laws.
MN court records from 2001 described Neal as a Mickey Cobras member and “police informant” who was allegedly involved in the death of Juwan Gatlin, a fellow gang member who was murdered after cooperating with police on a number of unsolved cases.
Neal is no stranger to law enforcement and has an extensive criminal record that includes arrests for attempted murder in 1996 and 2007 and is currently on probation for assault.
