Police say five MS-13 gang members stabbed a 16-year-old boy 100 times in Maryland last weekend before driving his body to a remote area of Virginia and setting it afire.
Police arrested the alleged gang leader, Jose Ordonez-Zometa, and four other members on first-degree murder charges in connection with the murder.
“Our victim, in this case, was part of this gang,” said Maj. Brian Reilly, commander of the Prince George’s County Police Department. “These were his gang-member friends that turned on him. This isn’t a gang war. I want to make sure we get that clear. This isn’t two gangs fighting each other. This is a gang that turned on one of their own.”
