More than two dozen people were arrested in DC, Maryland and Virginia Wednesday as the ATF, the FBI and local agencies teamed up for a gang-related sting operation, according to authorities.

Officials say the arrests stemmed from an investigation into Blood gang-related crimes throughout the area, particularly in Northern Virginia.
