October 4th, 2016 By HG 0

The 2016 school year for one Long Island, New York community has started with fear, frustration and funerals.

If you have any information concerning these crimes call (800) 220-TIPS.

Four teenagers from Brentwood High School on Long Island have been found dead within the past month, all suspected victims of gang violence:

  • On Sept. 13, the day before her 16th birthday, Nisa Mickens‘ brutally beaten body was found on a tree-lined street in Brentwood.
  • A day later, the beaten body of her lifelong friend, 16-year-old Kayla Cuevas, was discovered in the wooded backyard of a nearby home. The teenagers had been inseparable and shared an interest in basketball.
  • Days later, police discovered the skeletal remains of 19-year-old Oscar Acosta and 15-year-old Miguel Garcia-Moran in a remote industrial area of the town. Acosta had been missing since May, and Garcia-Moran vanished in February.

A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that the Salvadoran gang MS-13 is suspected, although police have not made arrests.

Students in Brentwood are being warned about walking alone or wearing colors which may make them a target to gangs.

We would like to add that all kids should be mindful of their surroundings and not hesitate to call 911 if they find themselves in danger.
