Long Island, NY—The NYPD has received information that members of MS-13 are “looking to ‘hit” officers who live in parts of Long Island to enhance their credibility within the gang.
In a memo released Tuesday, authorities from the police department’s 105th Precinct warned officers that the department has received “threats against [members of service]” who live in Brentwood and Central Islip, both hamlets in the Suffolk County town of Islip, as well as Patchogue.
“Intel has been obtained that members of MS13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area, as well as possibly Patchogue in order to gain street credibility,” according to the memo. “These members are conducting reconnaissance of [member of service] private residences.”
