Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consecteturTwo Long Island men–purportedly both members ф the MS-13 gang–have been charged with the murder of a 39-year-old Queens man, who was fatally shot outside a deli in Flushing just before midnight back on May 30.
“It is alleged that the defendants acting in concert with one another shot the victim once in the chest,” said District Attorney Brown. “This was a cold and senseless act of violence that ended the life of a 39- year-old father from El Salvador.” He noted that the defendants face the possibility of spending the rest of their lives behind bars. Identified as Roberto Abrego, 23, and Jose Alvarenga, 27, both of Prince Street in Hempstead, the defendants faced arraignment on a complaint charging them with second-degree murder and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Just before midnight on Tuesday, May 30, Fernando Gonzalez Chavez was outside a deli located at 40-38 162nd Street in Flushing.
Surveillance video of the scene allegedly shows one of the defendants – wearing a hooded sweatshirt – walk up to Mr. Chavez and shoot him once in the chest. The two defendants were allegedly acting in concert with one another to kill Mr. Chavez. The bullet perforated the victim’s lungs and struck his aorta. The 39-year-old father died at the scene.
