Mugshot of members of the Gilbert Goon.

The Gilbert Goons are a group of wealthy teens that have been going around and attacking people in the Phoenix Valley. They record what they do and post it on social media. People have been referring to them as a gang since they’ve been attacking people in parking lots and parks.

According to AZCentral, the Gilbert Goons are teenagers from southeast Valley high schools. They’re a group of about 20 kids described as “mostly white, upper-middle-class teenagers.” Their attacks include kicking and punching people with brass knuckles. The Goons have been randomly attacking other teenagers for over a year in a broad span of different locations such as parks, parking lots, and fast food restaurants in Gilbert, Arizona.

12 News says one of the Goons’ biggest attacks was when they attacked and killed a teenager by the name of Preston Lord, a 16-year-old boy. On Oct. 28, the Goons climbed into a car where Lord was sitting and knocked him out at a Halloween party. One of the Goons sent a message through Snapchat saying, “I hit a kid and this kid fell hit his head and then they kicked his head in the ground then I got word he died so id

According to the Arizona Daily Independent, shockingly, no arrests were made until Jan. 10 despite local police knowing who committed the crime. Five people were arrested including two adults and two teenagers who confirmed they took part in the attack. Still, there are many more members of the Gilbert Goons out there These arrests include Kyle Renner and Gage Garrison for attacking, and Travis Renner, K. Renner’s father for possession of illegal drugs in a related incident. Nevertheless, investigations will continue and hopefully result in the arrests of the rest of the Goons before they attack or kill any more people.

    I really hope they get what they deserve and their wealthy parents aren’t able to buy them off. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anything so horrific done by young people to other young people. What in the world is the matter with these kids and where are the parents although it sounds like some were involved. HORRIBLE!!!!!
