More MS-13 Murders

Relatives, Friends Remember Goals Of Slaying Victims

Monday, July 3, 2006; B01

His son was shot to death, and now Ruben Dominguez, tears filling his eyes, was struggling with a question he never thought he would have to answer: Where to bury his son?
"We can't leave him here if we leave and go back to Mexico one day," said Dominguez, 49, his voice disappearing as he stood outside a red-brick apartment complex in Silver Spring yesterday.
"We can't send him to Mexico if we stay here."
Late Friday night, his 19-year-old son, also named Ruben, and two other young men were fatally shot at a Prince George's County apartment complex, the latest victims, police say, of the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13…
Besides Ruben Dominguez of Silver Spring, police yesterday identified the other slain victims as Jesse Salvador, 20, of Hyattsville and Juan Fredy Rosales-Mendes, 29, of the District. The fourth man, who was not identified, is hospitalized with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said. Their assailants, as many as five or six, remained at large late yesterday…
Copeland said investigators have not determined whether the victims were chosen at random or targeted. There was no immediate indication that the shooting was provoked by a disagreement, he added. Witnesses said the gunmen yelled out the name of the gang as they opened fire.
MS-13 was started by Salvadoran immigrants in Los Angeles in the 1980s. In the Washington region, the gang initially operated in Northern Virginia and more recently became active in Prince George's and Montgomery counties…

It is a good thing that MS-13, a gang made up of mostly illegal El Salvadorian immigrants, is not violent and that the government is doing so little to prevent more from getting in to this country.
