Two illegal aliens and a juvenile have been arrested in connection to the murder of a 17-year-old Virginia high school student.
Parkview High School student Danny Centeno Miranda, 17, whom the principal described as “an under (the) radar kid,” who was not a troublemaker, was shot in the back as he walked to the bus stop to get to school Friday morning.
Henry Ernesto Dominguez, 20, and Juan Moises Aguirre Zelaya, 19 have been charged as accessories after the fact, and possession of a firearm by a person who is not a citizen of the United States, the Loudoun Times-Mirror reported.
Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman told reporters Saturday that he is seeking to try the unidentified 17-year-old alleged triggerman, who is believed to be from Mexico, as an adult.
Dominguez and Zelaya are from El Salvador and face possible deportation depending on how federal agencies deal with them according to Plowman, the Times-Mirror reported.
All three suspects have been described as possibly being part of the dangerous and violent Latin American gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13.
“There may be some gang affiliation, however we don’t know what the reason was exactly just yet or the actions that had taken place,” Sheriff Mike Chapman told the Times-Mirror.
According to the report, a group of MS-13 members from the high school tried to harass and intimidate the town’s middle school students into joining the gang in March. The students subsequently told their principal about the incident.
“I don’t think there’s any question that that school has gang activity,” Supervisor of Loudoun County Public Schools’ Department of Safety and Security, Suzanne Devlin, told the Times-Mirror.
According to the Washington Post, the victim was also an illegal alien whose parents sent him to the Texas border in 2013 where he was detained by federal authorities before the government flew him to Virginia to live with his uncle.
