MADRID — Spanish police have arrested the reputed head of the Latin Kings gang in Madrid who is wanted for questioning in connection with two murders.

The arrested man was identified as Romel Vinicio Pinto Rosero, alias "King Jordan," who has a criminal record including assorted assaults, threats and robberies, police said.

Police have linked Pinto Rosero to the murder of a 17-year-old Ecuadorian youth in Madrid's Carabanchel district in September last year and to the death of an 18-year-old Dominican man in the Ciudad Lineal district in November.

Several people have been arrested as suspects in the latter killing, most of them minors.

A group of up to ten assailants attacked the Dominican man early on the morning of 5 November, stabbing him 10 times in the back and dealing him a massive, and fatal, blow to the head.

Valencia police also have linked Pinto Rosero to a huge street brawl in Carabanchel in October.
