ALEXANDRIA, LA (WAFB) -

Federal officials reported a Salvadoran MS-13 gang member wanted in El Salvador on multiple murder charges was deported out of Louisiana on Friday.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Cesar Cruz-Marin, 42, who was in the US illegally, was flown out of Alexandria. 

Officials said Cruz-Marin was previously removed from the US in November 2009, but after returning to El Salvador allegedly shot three men in December 2010.

They added he then fled his native country and eventually re-entered the US. According to reports, Cruz-Marin was caught by a US Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Tennessee in October 2014.

He was later convicted on a felony charge of illegally re-entering the US and was transferred to the custody of ICE’s Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO) upon release from federal prison.

Cruz-Marin was transferred to Salvadoran law enforcement custody after his flight from Alexandria to Comalapa, El Salvador.
