San Francisco Chinatown Crime

Sing Tao Daily/ The Associated Press

Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow is shown after being sworn in as the "Dragon Head" of the Chee Kung Tong in Chinatown Aug. 6, 2006 in San Francisco. Investigators say Chow is the leader of one of the most powerful Asian gangs in North America. Born in Hong Kong in 1960, Chow came to the United States at 16 and was reportedly nicknamed "Shrimp Boy" by his grandmother, in part due to his small stature.
