MS-13 implicated in take-over robbery & murder in ABQ
A take-over robbery & shooting occured on 6/20 in Albuquerque at a crowded local Denny's. Albuquerque Police said one of the two captured murder suspects in belongs to the violent MS-13 Gang.
The FBI labels the group as exceedingly violent. One arrested suspect had the digits "503" shaved into the back of his scalp. 503 is the country code for El Salvador. The FBI claims that gang members identify themselves through 503 or gang tattoos on their chest.
Police said they don't consider this weekend's shooting gang related. "They committed a heinous crime. And the fact that they killed someone while they were committing that crime, I think that's more important than what gang affiliation they have," a former Bernalillo County deputy said.
KOAT reported Albuquerque police said they're now calling on other law enforcement organizations to step in and help with the case. Officials said the suspects in custody are not cooperating and haven't given any information to help them go after other gang members.
