Three illegal immigrants were charged Saturday in connection with the murder of a 17-year-old Virginia high school student who was gunned down on his way to a bus stop Friday morning.
According to The Washington Post, Danny Centeno-Miranda, who attended Park View High in Loudoun County, was about 50 yards from the school bus stop when he was shot twice in the back.
Centeno-Miranda, who moved to Virginia from his native El Salvador to live with relatives in 2013, died later at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
Authorities have learned that the suspects are illegal immigrants based on information given to them by the suspects, Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office, told The Washington Post.
All three suspects are to be arraigned Tuesday. They are being held without bond.
“This was not a random incident,” Sheriff Mike Chapman said at a news conference Saturday, the paper reported. “The suspects and the victim were known to each other.”
