ATLANTIC CITY — More than 300 law enforcement officers rounded up 25 alleged members of an Atlantic City street gang Tuesday in a series of raids authorities said were aimed at smashing a violent heroin-trafficking ring in the resort.

Three fugitives remained at large, and six other suspects already were in custody before the predawn operation, officials said.
