Reputed MS-13 gang member Alvaro DelGado was arrested after authorities allegedly found the murder weapon at his Bay Shore home. District Attorney Thomas Spota says DelGado had nothing to do with those murders, but MS-13 members pass around and recycle weapons used in crimes.
Wilbur Porter, 43, of Deer Park, N.Y., was arrested Wednesday for allegedly selling a fully automatic machine gun pistol. Spota also says investigators found 10 handguns and other firearms at the home of a West Babylon man on May 31.
