NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Cops have been cracking down on MS-13, and now MS-13 is said to be ready to strike back the way they do in their headquarters in El Salvador.

An MS-13 member from Hempstead reportedly vowed to execute a police officer.

"MS-13 wants to threaten a cop in this county, MS-13 is going to get an answer. They did last night, they will continue now for the next several day until we arrest the individual that makes that threat against our members," Nassau Police Commissioner, Patrick Ryder said.

Neighborhood sweeps on Wednesday let to several arrests.

There's a $25,000 reward up for the MS-13 member who made the threat and it also applies to anyone who threatens the life of a police officer.

The NYPD has also been alerted to the threat.
