Feds Indict MS-13 Members Who Planned Murders To Fill Violence Quota

A federal grand jury indicted four MS-13 members for attempted murder and several other charges Thursday after the thugs planned a gang killing in order to maintain their membership.

MS-13 requires potential members to commit acts of violence before being admitted to the gang, and once in, they are required to keep committing violent crimes and killing rivals, known as chavalas,? at every opportunity, according to the Department of Justice. The Thursday indictment charges four men, Fermin Gomez-Jimenez, 20; Manuel Martinez-Aguilar, aka El Lunatic? and Zomb,? 19; Moises Alexis Reyes-Canales, aka Sicopita,? 19; and Marlon Cruz-Flores, 22, all of Annapolis, Md.

The four men planned and attempted to kill two people in Annapolis. They are also charged with the use, carrying and possession of a firearm during and in relation to a violent crime, and conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering.

The indictments come barely a week after Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared the MS-13 gang a priority threat Oct. 23, giving federal agents new tools to combat the transnational cartel.
