BALTIMORE - A 15-year-old is in police custody after a string of carjackings in northwest Baltimore on Sunday and investigators say there may be more arrests coming.
Police say it all happened early Sunday in the Park Heights neighborhood where someone came up to two people with a gun and demanded they give up their car, but little did they know it was the beginning to a series of thefts.
“Those crimes, to steal cars and to do stuff like this, this is not for this generation," Rabbi Yuval Noff said.
He says news of carjackings in his neighborhood is frustrating for an otherwise peaceful community.
Whether it's the two teenage girls in Brentwood or the four young friends found killed in Central Islip, victims of the violent MS-13 gang are turning up in alarming numbers on Long Island.
It comes as no surprise to the head of the FBI's Long Island gang task force, Geraldine Hart, who says violence is that gang's prime business.
"They bolster their ranking among other gangs by using violence," she told News 4 in an exclusive interview.
The gang that originated in El Salvador has more than 200 hardcore members on Long Island, and they're unafraid to kill for no reason. The FBI has now joined the investigation into the murders of young people on Long Island in recent months.
