Mara Salvatrucha (MS), also known as MS - 13 (the 13 representing their Sureño affiliation), is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles, California, in the 1980s.

BOSTON (Reuters) - Three suspected members of the MS - 13 gang in Massachusetts were convicted on Monday of participating in gang -related murders , in a case U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has called an example of how authorities can try to tackle the criminal organization.

They jumped in a car, driven by Anival Guevara, and escaped.

Diaz was pronounced dead in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.

“We will never know what Hector said in those final moments of his life to these three killers, but the violent way in which they chose to take his life after only a brief conversation with him is what makes this gang so dangerous,” Assistant District Attorney Lisa Collins said, according to the press release.

Anival Guevara was sentenced Wednesday to 27 years, while Jonathan Guevara was convicted in February and sentenced to 99 years. Herrera also was sentenced to 40 years in a separate plea agreement.

All three men are from Central America, prosecutors said.
