The seven suspects are detained without bail in the Baltimore County detention center after bail-over hearings.

All six illegal immigrants were identified as MS-13 members in an ICE gang database, an ICE spokeswoman said Fox news.

The spokeswoman said ICE has issued six immigration officers.

Officials said that five of the suspects are Salvadoran and one is Mexican.

A motive for Cuellar's murder remains under investigation, but the authorities believe the victim was murdered because of a war between two rival Latino street gangs, 18th Street and MS-13, according to the Baltimore Sun..
