Houston Police arrest nine suspected members of the MS13 Gang, charging them with three murders.

Four suspects are accused of hacking to death a confidential informant with a machete in June. He was still wearing the wire when investigators found his remains. Police also believed two suspects are related to other MS13 members.

"These gangs represent a threat to public safety. And none of us in this city - the citizens included - will not tolerate any vicious crimes or lack of respect for human life and the laws of our city," Houston Mayor, Sylvester Turner, said.

Police Chief, Art Acevedo, said there are about 20,000  gang members in Houston.

He said the 800 MS13 members are responsible for a disproportionate amount of violence on the gulf coast.
