MS-13 Caught Plotting to Target Off-Duty Cops

The nation’s largest police department is warning its officers about an increasing threat from MS-13 gangbangers and saying that they are particularly vulnerable when off-duty. (CBS New York)
 

CBS2’s Dick Brennan reports that in a bulletin the NYPD put out this alert: “Members of MS-13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area as well as possibly Patchogue.”

The bulletin says that the gang members would carry out the attacks on off-duty officers “in order to gain street credibility.”

While the threat has not been substantiated, law enforcement experts say this cannot be taken lightly.

“Whenever a law enforcement officer is being threatened, especially by an organization like MS-13 which we already know is uber violent and has killed numerous people throughout the country if not throughout the world, this has to be taken serious,” said former FBI agent Manny Gomez.

The gang’s presence is largest in Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties.
