Honduran officials blame gang for football field massacre of 14 people

blankociated Press | October 31, 2010

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — Honduras’ vice minister for security says members of the Mara 18 gang apparently committed the slaying of 14 people on a football field.

Armando Calidonio says the nine ki*lers were apparently gunning for a youth named Froylan, who was one of the eight injured in Saturday’s attack. He says the shooting appears to be part of a battle for gang territory in the northern city of San Pedro Sula.

Mblank shootings are not uncommon in Honduras and “mara” street gangs are often blamed for rampant violent crime, extortion and drug cartel kil#i*ggs.

Calidonio says that after the shooting, the ki*lers checked each of the bodies — apparently to see if they had gang tattoos or weapons.
