Tested a developmental-ecological model of violence using longitudinal data from poor, urban African American and Latino adolescent boys and caregivers. Found that community structural characteristics significantly predicted neighborhood social processes. Parenting practices partially mediated relationship between neighborhood social processes and gang membership. Parenting practices were fully mediated in their relationship to peer violence by gang membership. Gang membership was partially mediated by peer violence in relation to individual violence.
