The Espinosa Gang was a Latino gang based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

History

Better Call Saul

Season 4

In order to hide the murder of Arturo Colon from the Cartel, Gus Fring arranges for his henchmen Victor and Tyrus to drive Nacho Varga to the desert where they stage a shootout. Victor and Tyrus place Arturo's corpse in a car and riddle it with bullets before shooting Nacho twice as to not arouse suspicion; the Cousins later arrive to burn the car, save Nacho, and are told that the attack was by the Espinosa Gang. ("Something Beautiful")

Sometime thereafter, the Cousins scout the gang's compound with Nacho. Eager for revenge, the Cousins unload their arsenal from the trunk before initiating a violent shootout. Nacho watches in shock as the Cousins kill every last member of the gang.

The attack on the gang was a strategic move planned by Gus so he would be awarded the now-unclaimed territory by the cartel. ("Talk")
