Posted on 04/23/2009 8:40:18 AM PDT by freespirited
A man who authorities said led a local clique of the gang Mara Salvatrucha has been convicted in federal court in Alexandria of murdering a rival gang member in Springfield in 2007, and the man now faces a mandatory life sentence.
Federal prosecutors said Oscar Omar Lobo-Lopez, 30, of Springfield was the leader of Hollywood Locos Salvatrucha, an offshoot of the gang MS-13. Lobo-Lopez and fellow gang member Sergio Amador had been hunting for Melvin Reyes because he reputedly belonged to the 18th Street gang, authorities said.
On May 5, 2007, Lobo-Lopez and Amador found Reyes in the Springfield Garden apartments in the 7200 block of Commerce Street, chased him and wounded him.
As Reyes lay on the ground, prosecutors said, Lobo-Lopez ordered Amador to "finish him," and Amador shot Reyes in the head. Reyes had been shot nine times. At trial, Amador testified against Lobo-Lopez, who was convicted Tuesday of conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering and murder in aid of racketeering.
Amador has not been tried yet but is cooperating with the investigation.

Why did this creep not qualify for the needle?
Sounds like all were illegal aliens.
They should just stop wasting taxpayers time and money and execute these gangsta thugs
Sounds like this guy did a public service.
Maybe he can sign up for Obama’s mandatory community service brownshirts.
Tell me about it. My gun is on order.
Some one should notify DHS Janet Nappy, her spokes person Shawn, said he was not aware of MS-13 when he interviewed with Roger Hedgecock..but then they are more concerned with Canada,, and those extremists..
Oh, yeah, and keep them there.
Now, as far as Salvadoran gang members murdering each other, they can't do that fast enough. This one event result in a whole big bunch of them moving to Maryland. Left some major holes in the parking lot at Springfield Gardens in fact.
They are all Salvadorans ~ here under a parole established by the courts and administered by Eric Holder personally.
What kind of verdict/sentence is that? Give the guy a medal, his gun back and put a $1000 bounty on Mexicans!
I’d rather give him a nice meal and execute him at sunrise.
Respect diversity, or else we’ll send you to sit in the “chair of reflection”.
“Some one should notify DHS Janet Nappy, her spokes person Shawn, said he was not aware of MS-13 “
Seriously? He actually said that? I can believe they are not aware...they miss most facts...
Proof positive that even after the careful astronaut selection, dhimmicrats do occasionally fool the doctors and get selected.
This is the gang that the accused murderer of Chandra Levy belongs to. Just heard about this today.
Amador testified against Lobo-Lopez”
Amador is a dead man.
