Maryland Police arrested six people for the stabbing murder of a Maryland man in July and all were identified as MS 13 gang members and illegal immigrants.

Another man, Leonel Alexander Velasquez-Hernadez, 16, was arrested and charged as an adult for the murder of 21-year-old Daniel Alejandro Alvarado Cuellar.

The six suspects identified by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement are Jonathan Escobar-Hernandez, 20, Marlon Fabian-Flores, 20, Edwin Edgardo Garcia-Martir, 18, Hugo Portillo-Chavez, 31, Jose Fausto Rivera-Coreas, 19, and 20-year-old Odaliz Rosas-Yanez Fox News reported.


Cuellar’s body was discovered July 31 in the grass outside an apartment building in the Townson area and had “multiple sharp-force injuries,” officials said in a news release.

Police said that Cuellar was the intended victim of a planned gang-related murder, but said a motive for the slaying remained under investigation.

“We know this group of individuals was conducting surveillance on him, they were watching him, following him.

“We know they watched as he left the laundromat and went back across the street to the apartment complex and that is where some of those individuals accosted him,” Officer Jennifer Peach said.


“We know they used knives and multiple people stabbed him multiple times,” she said in an interview with Fox 45.

An ICE spokeswoman told Fox News on Sunday that the agency has issued six immigration detainers. The federal agency said that detainers were lodged once the individuals entered local law enforcement custody on murder charges.

Of the seven suspects, six are in the U.S. illegally, the ICE spokeswoman added. Of the six illegal immigrant suspects, who were not named, five are Salvadoran and one is Mexican, ICE said.

All of the six illegal immigrants were identified as MS-13 members in an ICE gang database, the ICE spokeswoman said.

Investigators believe that Cuellar’s killing was due to a war between two rival Latino street gangs, the 18th Street and MS-13, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The 21-year-old had been seen making a hand gesture that was believed to be “indicative of an affiliation with the 18th Street,” detectives wrote in charging documents obtained by the Sun.

“We’ve seen a rise in gang activity here this spring. There have been a few homicides in the region, as you’ve seen,” Northern Virginia Gang Task Force Director Jay Lanham said in June.

“Last year, we saw the gangs, especially MS-13, laying low. We arrested a lot of the program and clique leaders so their leadership was lacking,” he said.
