Maryland: A 14-year old girl who participated in the kidnapping and robbery of man in April, was herself murdered with a machete by her cohorts, according to police. St. George’s County had two of them in custody in a separate murder case last year, but authorities released the suspects back into the public.
Ramiro Gutierrez, believed to be a member of MS-13, was arrested on suspicion of killing a member of a rival gang. Gutierrez and eleven others were charged in December with conspiracy and attempted murder, as well as drug and weapons charges, but he was released from prison on $2,500 to await trial.
Eleven MS-13 gang members are facing life in prison after being charged in the kidnappings and deaths of two teens whose bodies were dug up in a Virginia park last year. The teens were killed weeks apart, as MS-13 allegedly believed that one was a member of a rival gang and the other was thought to be a police informant. The group’s motto is “Kill, rape, control.”
Fights occur almost daily, knives and a BB gun have been confiscated, and some parents are afraid their children will be killed. Police had been called to the school 74 times since the school year started. The school’s population jumped by 50% in recent years due to the surge of immigration from 2012 to 2016 under Obama’s unaccompanied children program.
