MS-13 is an extremely dangerous gang which has a growing presence in New York State. Many of the gang members are illegal immigrants and they are reportedly recruiting younger and younger members.
Police now believe they are responsible for four recent murders on Long Island.

Four Murdered on Long Island Likely MS-13 Gang Killings, Say Police
NEW YORK—Suffolk County Police are looking for suspects after four bodies were found in Central Islip on April 12.
The four victims’ identities have not been released, but Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini said they are all males—one is aged 16, two are 18, and one is 20.
“They all suffered from significant trauma throughout their body,” Sini said in a press conference on April 13. “It appears they were killed with a sharp or edged instrument.”
Sini said the four were killed in one incident and the murders happened within the last few days—although he declined to release more exact details.
The bodies were found in a park bordered by Clayton Street and Lowell Avenue, ten minutes drive from the center of Brentwood.
Sini confirmed that the manner in which the young men were killed “is consistent with the modus operandi of MS-13.”
This is a problem which must be dealt with sooner than later.
