Multiple buildings and vehicles in Loudon County, VA were vandalized with graffiti tags bearing the moniker of a notorious El Salvadorian street gang early Tuesday morning.
According to WUSA9, several vehicles on Gatwick Square and Wintergrove Drive were discovered with “MS-13″ spray painted on the exteriors.
Additionally, walls, pillars and two parked school buses at nearby Trailside Middle School were also found bearing the gang tags.
MS-13 is known as one of the most violent gangs in the world, and has been connected to a string of murders on both the East and West coasts.
They are so feared in El Salvador, prison officials have allowed a detention center filled with 2,500 known members to essentially run itself.
Trailside Middle School is located roughly 8 miles from Parkside High School, where recently murdered 17-year-old Danny Centeno-Miranda attended classes.
Centeno-Miranda was shot twice on Sept. 4 in Sterling, VA by 20-year-old Henry Dominguez-Vasquez, 18-year-old Juan Aguirre-Zelaya and an unnamed 17-year-old.
All four men were in the country illegally.
Dominguez-Vasquez and Aguirre-Zelaya were charged with possession of a firearm by a person who is not a citizen of the United States and accessory after the fact, and the juvenile was charged with 2nd degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
It is currently unknown whether the two cases are related. The Loudon County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately return The Daily Caller’s request for comment.
