Jose Herrera
Montgomery County Jail

An alleged member of the notorious street gang MS-13 in Maryland was gunned down just two days after being released from jail despite a federal immigration detainer lodged against him, reports said.

Jose Herrera, 18, a Honduran immigrant, was charged in October with trespassing and fourth-degree burglary for squatting in an abandoned building-turned-MS-13 hangout and issued a criminal summons, WJLA reported. When he failed to show up in court, a judge issued a bench warrant, which he was arrested for on Dec. 12.

Ten days later, he was released on a $100 bond even though there was a pending ICE detainer the agency said was lodged in October.

On Christmas Eve, just two days after his release from jail, Herrera was fatally shot in front of a Silver Spring apartment. :D

Officials with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Herrera could still be alive if Montgomery County officials hadn’t released him despite the detainer, WJLA reported.

The outlet, citing sources familiar with the situation, said Herrera had recently been expelled from school and kicked out of his uncle’s home, leaving him homeless and vulnerable to gang recruitment.

A Montgomery County rep did not provide the outlet a statement regarding ICE’s claims of obstruction.
