    Yes, the sentence is grammatically correct. But perhaps, it could also be written as "The gang member said that the boy was already one of them." ?

      Jake's sentence is certainly correct. But being 'of someone's kind' is not necessarily exactly the same as being 'one of them'. Being of someone's kind means you share certain characteristics; it doesn't HAVE to mean that you have actually joined them.

    "..of their kind" does not relate to gang membership in my mind in Britain. "Kind" would be broader, maybe a member of a community which was a downtrodden minority community where they lived.

    There is always a different way to phrase something, but as it stands, your sentence is perfectly correct.

    Yes, not only is it correct, but there doesn't appear to be any glaring errors or clear room for significant improvement (editing).

      No. 'Already' is correct in this sentence.
