Three teenagers arrested in Fairfax gang slaying

Three teenagers have been arrested this week in the beating death of 16-year-old Christian Perez in Fairfax County last week, and police said the homicide appeared to be gang-related.


Albarenga. (Fairfax Police)

Perez, of the Lorton area,was found dead from blunt force trauma in Woodlawn Park, in the Mount Vernon area on March 19. Police believe he was beaten with a baseball bat.

With the help of the U.S. Marshals Service and their regional fugitive task force, and Prince William police, a 15-year-old boy was arrested in Woodbridge on Monday. He is charged in Fairfax juvenile court with murder. The Washington Post generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes unless they are charged as adults.

On Wednesday, 19-year-old Jorge Albarenga of Southlawn Court in the Mount Vernon area was arrested in Harrisonburg, and he was charged with malicious wounding by mob and gang participation.

On Friday, a 16-year-old male was arrested in New York City, police said. He also was charged with murder. Police withheld disclosure of the arrests until all three suspects were in custody.

Lets's not rush to judgement, these poor immigrant youths are innocent until proven guilty by a jury of their peers.

Flat out disgusting.

I wish nothing but the worse for these killers (sorry, but it is how I feel).

They have NO idea what life is really about.

Make a mental note of how many of these serious crimes are committed by individuals with Hispanic names. There are certainly criminals of all persuasions, but this new group has made a disproportionate contribution.

Those aged 18-20 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. This article is incorrectly titled so this article should've been titled "Boys and young man arrested in Fairfax gang slaying". It's not good that boy has been murdered but it is good that the young man and boys involved in the murder have been arrested.
