In a horrific incident, notorious US street gang that President Donald Trump vowed to wipe out beheaded a man and cut out his heart, a report said.
According to an AFP report, the victim, who has not been identified yet, was stabbed more than 100 times and then his body was buried in a park near the US capital. As per the charging documents obtained by Montgomery Community Media and WBALTV11, the attack that involves at least 10 people was planned for weeks.
Authorities have so far arrested Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, 19 and an alleged member of the MS-13 gang, on first-degree murder charges, the report said.
Detectives began investigating in September thanks to a tip from an informant who said he knew of a murder committed in the spring in a Wheaton park, the Washington Post reported, quoting court records.
Gang members lured the victim to the park and spoke to each other on walkie-talkies as he arrived, the paper added.
The ultra-violent Latino street gang works as an umbrella grouping of units, some of which are larger and more violent than others. The gang has become a focus of the US President's crackdown on crime, which according to him has surged as a result of borders easily crossed by members. Earlier, the authorities had announced they had netted 214 members of the gang in a month-long nationwide sweep.
