A Texas district attorney says MS-13 leaders in El Salvador are green-lighting hits by gang members in the U.S. Her comments came in reference to an MS-13 gang member arrested last week in Virginia on warrants relating to the murders of two Houston-area residents.

“The way they murder, machetes, shooting them dozens of times. It’s purposeful, and that’s to instill fear in the community,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg told reporters at a press conference about an MS-13 gang member accused of killing two people in the Houston area.


Police in Virginia arrested Douglas Alexander Herrera-Hernandez on an outstanding warrant from Texas after the Department of Public Safety added him to their 10 Most Wanted list, Breitbart Texas reported. The first of two alleged murders occurred on June 13, 2016, in Missouri City, a suburb of Houston located in Fort Bend County. The second incident happened on July 9, 2017, in southeast Houston.

ICE officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that the MS-13 illegal alien arrested over the weekend in Virginia for two alleged murders in Houston entered as an Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC). Border Patrol agents released him under President Obama’s catch-and-release program, and he failed to appear for a removal hearing.

Herrera-Hernandez, aka “Terror,” a 20-year-old El Salvadoran, entered the U.S. in the Rio Grande Valley in December 2014. Records indicate he crossed the border at age 17. Border Patrol agents arrested him shortly after he crossed the border and released him with a “notice to appear” before an immigration judge.
