Two alleged gang members were indicted by a Clayton County grand jury, Wednesday, according to court records. Albert Martinez, 22, of Ellenwood, is being held without bond in the Clayton County Jail on multiple charges. Co-defendant, Marco Aguilar, has not been arrested, according to the records.

Both are charged in connection with a Nov. 9, 2007 shooting that left one of two victims paralyzed on his left side, the indictments allege.
