Last Wednesday, the Prosecutors indicted the alleged national leader and 22 members of the MS-13 gang with murder and other crimes of violence.
The National Leader and 22 Members of the MS-13 Gang are indicted
The New York Office of the Attorney publicized the 48-count intervening indictment against Edenilson Velasquez Larin, the alleged leader of the MS-13 Gang and the Fulton Locos Salvatruchas for his alleged ordered murders, money laundering, and drugs distribution for the MS-13 Gang.
The charges detailed several murders and attempted murders by the MS-13 Gang against opposing gang members using firearms and machetes.
Prosecutors said that alleged leaders ordered alleged MS-13 members to search the Elmont, New York, neighborhood for rival 18th Street members and kill them for intruding on their territory. An alleged MS-13 member from Maryland ultimately found an individual on as member 18th Street and shot him dead.
MS-13 Gang murders are brutal and cold-blooded
The violent crimes committed by these MS-13 Gang members were brutal and completely senseless. Law enforcement agencies are working to dismantle MS-13 Gang, a transnational criminal organization, its leaders, and its members that are accountable for the violence and other illegal activities that they have committed in our communities.
