GIBSONVILLE, N.C. — A suspected gang member who was wanted for allegedly stabbing his brother on Christmas Day has turned himself in to local authorities, according to a news release.
Jose Gonsalo Flores, 27, turned himself in at the Gibsonville Police Department around 11 a.m. Thursday, police said.
Flores was wanted on one charge of attempted first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing his brother on Sunday.
The victim was hospitalized after the stabbing, although his condition has since improved. Police said he could be released from the hospital Thursday evening, police said.
Flores was jailed in Guilford County under a $500,000 bond. Police said the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement also placed a federal detainer on him.
Police said Tuesday that Flores, who also goes by the aliases “Chalo” and “Animal,” is a reported gang member of SUR13 and an El Salvador national, police said.
Before Flores turned himself in, police described him as being armed with knives and having a history of possessing assault rifles, police said.
The suspect was also described as having multiple tattoos, including three dots between his thumb and forefinger, “SUR13” on his left shoulder and “ALONDRA” on his chest, police said.
Police said several other local agencies, including Burlington police, Elon police and the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, worked together on the investigation.
