The Colombian Scorpions were one of two criminal organizations which were involved in a gang war in Los Angeles in 1997. In East L.A., they were led by Ramon Vega and were fierce rivals with the Jamaican Voodoo Posse.


The Colombians were in a fierce turf war with the Jamaican Voodoo Posse for control of the Los Angeles drug trade. When several Scorpions members were slaughtered by the City Hunter, Vega assumed the Jamaicans were responsible. However, before he could retaliate Vega was ambushed in his apartment and killed in ritualistic fashion by Gold Tooth and numerous other Voodoo Posse members. This act apparently crippled the Scorpions, severely reducing their strength.
