MS-13 Gang Members Charged in Brutal Teen Stabbing Death

Five MS-13 gang members were charged with first-degree murder for the brutal stabbing death of a 16-year-old member of the gang, according to Maryland police.

The victim, Jacson Pineda-Chicas, was stabbed 100 times and his body was dumped in Virginia and set on fire.

Prince George’s County Police described the arrests in a press statement.

The police believe Pineda-Chicas was killed at the home of the gang leader in Prince George’s County Maryland.

NBC News Washington reported Pineda-Chicas was killed because gang members thought he was talking with the police.

Fox News also reported on the brutal killing.

A large number of MS-13 gang members were apprehended for trying to illegally enter the U.S.

In fiscal year 2018, U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehended 413 MS-13 gang members and 160 were caught so far in fiscal year 2019.

MS-13 gang members represent a threat to communities and that justifies stronger border security including construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico southern border.
