This month’s robbery and murder of a Los Angeles police officer was the case of Florencia 13 (F13), a Latin street gang run mainly by the Mexican mafia.

Fernando Arroyos, a 27-year-old LAPD officer, was shot dead in South Los Angeles on Jan. 10 while trying to steal while searching homes with his girlfriend. he said.

Arroyos collapsed in the alley and later died at the hospital.

Luis Alfredo De La Rosa Rios, 29; Ernesto Sisneros, 22; Jesse Contreras, 34; and Rios ’girlfriend, 18-year-old Hayley Marie Grisham, has been charged in a federal court with felony criminal mischief for aiding racketeering, which includes a potential death penalty and at least a life sentence in federal prison.

The three are members of F13, a Grisham gang partner, and they carried out the attack to increase and maintain their position within the gang. This was reported by Justice Dertment.

According to The Los Angeles TimesF13 is controlled by a prison gang of the Mexican mafia, founded in the 1950s in South Los Angeles and made up mostly of about 140 men, most of whom are in jail.

“F13 is a large, multi-generational street gang that has previously been the subject of two major racketeering cases, including federal prosecutions,” the DOJ said.

The Times reported earlier this month that Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva had asked the federal government to address the situation because she did not believe the office of Los Angeles County Attorney George Gascon would be tough enough.

Los Angeles police officers are attending a candlelight vigil for officer Fernando Arroyos, who was shot and killed on Jan. 12, 2022, during an armed robbery attempt in front of the Olympic Community Police Department in Los Angeles.

LAPD held a fundraiser for the Arroyos family at the officer’s Olympic Station station on Wednesday.

“He was a really humble hard worker, always walking with a smile and it was so nice to be around him.” An officer told Acesparks 11. “We miss him so much. He’s a family to us.”
