Police on Monday arrested two gang members who had been on the run for nearly eight years, wanted in the killing of a Minneapolis man in a rival gang.

Gary Vue, 27, and his brother, Chong Vue, 29, of St. Paul, were the subject of an "America's Most Wanted" television show in November 2006. They were wanted for the shooting death of 21-year-old Za Xiong, who was killed in north Minneapolis in July 2001.

The FBI's Minnesota Fugitive Task Force developed information that the Vues were in the area. They were arrested Monday morning in St. Paul.

In March 2006, the Vues were charged with second-degree murder and later indicted by a grand jury on first-degree murder. The Vues were members of the Oroville Mono Boys and Xiong of the Purple Brother Street gang.
