The FBI is asking Apple Inc. to unlock the phone of an alleged Boston gang member, but Apple is objecting to the request, according to the Boston Globe.
A search warrant was approved in February for two phones belonging to Desmond Crawford.
Crawford is allegedly in the Columbia Point Dawgs and possibly shot a rival gang leader.
