8 MS-13 gang members in US illegally indicted in Texas

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Prosecutors say eight MS-13 members in the U.S. illegally have been indicted in Texas on charges tied to alleged gang activities including racketeering conspiracy, attempted murder and assault.

U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox announced the charges at a news conference Friday in Dallas. Officials describe the gang as one of the most ruthless and violent on the streets.

Authorities say seven defendants were in custody Friday. A news release says some of the defendants are tied to attacks in Texas last year using a variety of weapons, including machetes.

Court documents say the MS-13 gang has been operating in the U.S. since at least the 1980s.
