South Country schools take extra security precautions after alleged gang attacks

Changes are expected in a Suffolk County school district following the apparent MS-13 quadruple homicide in Central Islip.

Officials say Jorge Tigre, Justin Llivicura, Michael Banegas and Jefferson Villalobos were beaten and slashed to death in a park last week. 

Newsday says there will be extra security precautions taken in the South Country Central School District when classes resume after spring break Monday.

The district is also activating a crisis team at Bellport High School, where two of the victims attended.
