Detectives in St Helens brought allegations against a further three people after initially charging seven, details of which were reported by the Star last week.
The police investigation into a spate of flare ups, which saw gunshots fired at houses and cars torched in Parr and Sutton, stretches back to July 2011.
The violence is allegedly linked to a feud between factions within the traveller community.

Also facing the same charge are: Christopher Michael Kendal, 28 of Boardmans Lane, Blackbrook; Deborah Jane Ballard, 43 of Cleveland Street, Peasley Cross and Stephen Finney, 20 of Lambourne Grove.
They have been bailed to appear at St Helens Magistrates’ Court on March 15 along with four men who were charged last week with multiple offences.
The charges of conspiracy to supply a class A controlled drug, conspiracy to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life /enable another to do so and conspiracy to commit arson have been brought against: Eugene Price, 31 of Sherdley Road, Sutton; Christopher Lunt, 26 of Sandy Lane, Wigan; David John Doolan, 27, and Alan Doolan, 22, both of Gray Street, Bootle.
