From the Daily News:
El Salvadoran leaders of the MS-13 gang allegedly put out a contract on the federal agent responsible for a crackdown on its New York factions, the Daily News has learned.
The brazen plot to assassinate the unidentified Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent was revealed in an arrest warrant for reputed gang member Walter (Duke) Torres.
Torres tipped authorities to the plan after he and four other MS-13 members were stopped by NYPD detectives for hassling passersby on Northern Blvd. in Queens last month.
The murder was supposed to be carried out by the Flushing clique, according to the informant.
The feds have identified various neighborhoods in Queens and Long Island as hotbeds of MS-13 criminal activity - including Jamaica, Flushing, Far Rockaway, Hempstead, Roosevelt, Brentwood and Islip.
