US attorney general to visit LI to discuss gang violence

CENTRAL ISLIP -

United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions is coming to Long Island this week to discuss the ongoing battle against gang violence.

Sources say Sessions will visit the federal courthouse in Central Islip on Friday.

Just weeks ago, the bodies of four young men were found at a park in Central Islip.

Authorities believe those slayings were carried out by MS-13.

The notorious gang is also blamed for the recent killings of two girls in Brentwood.
