Teenager kills brother in gang shootout
GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) – A teenage member of a violent street gang in Guatemala killed his younger brother for belonging to a rival group, police said on Friday, as the two criminal groups battle for dominance across Central America.
Hector Mazariegos, 18, who belongs to the Mara 18 gang, shot dead his 13-year-old brother Cesar, a member of the rival Mara Salvatrucha, outside the house they shared in a dangerous run-down district of Guatemala City. The younger brother wounded his sibling.
So the 18-year old was an 18th Streeter, while the 13-year old was in MS-13. If nothing else, they were up on their arithmetic.
