Hammond, IN – Eduardo Luciano, a 35-year-old gang leader from Hammond, Indiana, has been sentenced to multiple life terms in prison. According to U.S. Attorney Clifford D. Johnson, Luciano was found guilty of several charges, including conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity, drug distribution, and using a firearm to commit murder.

According to court documents, on June 29, 2015, Luciano, a leader of the Hammond faction of the Latin Counts, orchestrated a plan to attack members of the Latin Kings, a rival gang, at a vigil on Beall Avenue. The attack resulted in the deaths of 33-year-old Christopher White and 16-year-old Lauren Calvillo. Luciano received two life sentences for the murders and an additional life sentence for racketeering, alongside 240 months for drug-related charges, all to run concurrently.

The case, part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation, involved a wide range of law enforcement agencies, including the ATF/High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and the Hammond Police Department, highlighting extensive efforts to address gang violence and drug trafficking.
