Wash. Teen Kills Sureño Gang Members, Claims Self-Defense

August 10, 2012  | 

Prosecutors filed first-degree murder charges against a 19-year-old who fatally shot two Sureño gang members in the head at a Washington swimming hole.

Lameiro Efren Flores is being held in the Yakima County jail on $2 million bail pending arraignment Aug. 21 in the slayings of 18-year-old Jobany Martinez and 17-year-old Jose Avilez, reports the Yakima Herald-Republic.

Flores told police he had been assaulted by Martinez (known as "Demon") and Avilez ("Sicko"), and brought his .45-caliber pistol to the river because he had a "gut feeling" they may attack him again.

Flores opened fire after Martinez and Avilez told him, "Catch you later."

Only if you are an Anaheim police officer can you defend yourself with deadly force. Everyone else goes to jail.
