I agree that gangs will probably not mix well with other gangs, some might be surprising though and join forces together. Not sure how much you know about gang affiliation but there are two major groups of gangs, FOLK and PEOPLE nations. Since this line of thought came out of mentioning Compton I will point out how the Bloods gang aligns with the PEOPLE nation while Crips align with FOLK nation. While in Chicago area it is Gangster Disciples who align with FOLK nation and Latin Kings with PEOPLE nation. These two groupings unite many gangs across the country and many of the smaller gangs would band together under these banners as they do even not in ZPAW. I think it will take a bit before they start targeting each other however. I think they would be more worried about consolidating and protecting there own area. I think it more likely they would set up a formidable defensive area in their territory and raid into wealthier areas rather then the other gang territories. They aren't stupid and would know the other gangs would be armed and difficult targets with little to give if defeated. They would know that suburbs and other nongang areas are under organised under armed and have much more resources. I think they would go after the easier targets vs fighting wars for little gain with other gangs.
Of course this is all speculation, and I also would not condone the idea of raiding. These concepts though could be a reality people might have to consider if they live near gang territory. That these gangs might organise and attempt to raid their area for resources that the gang's territory lacks.

So really what are those gangs going to do when they run out of food. Will they just change their ways and become farmers? I really dont think so. Well not at first, but things happen.
Gangs might protect their own, but if your not already with them, I would not count them on being friendly if they come knocking on your door.
As for other areas that might not be organized or armed, hate to see what happens to any gangs that try to do something stupid in most US states especially near US Military bases or communities of active or retired military families or any community that are active hunters and sportsmans. Thing is The US has many guns and they are not mostly in the hands of gangsters. Granted not everyone knows how to properly shoot a gun, the point is do you think gangs want to find out who has guns when the SHTF. When the SHTF would you know if someone has a gun? I wouldnt unless that person has a gun in plain sight.
The gangs will be just like everyone else looking for food or other things. They might try and do things their way to getting what they want, but in the end they will have to do some major life changing choices just like everyone else to survive. If all the food runs out, as in none can be found, they will ether grow it or hunt it like everyone else or they will starve. If they try to do something stupid, they will get a very unwelcome surprise depending on where they go.

What do "normal, non-zombiephobic" people do when a stranger on the streets take a chunk out of they're arm... they go to the hospital with they're newly infected ass. And, the nurse/doctor has to help them, not knowing that at any time, they're gonna change and take a bite outta THEM. Now, we got a hospital full of pissed off, fresh zombies waiting for the next idiot to walk in the front door for help. So... in closing, look for me as far away from a hospital as possible wtshtf lol
