(WASHINGTONPOST) — Three people have been charged in connection with the shooting death of a 17-year-old who fled poverty and violence in his native El Salvador only to be gunned down on his way to a school bus stop Friday morning in Loudoun County.
Danny Centeno-Miranda, who moved to Virginia to live with relatives in 2013, was about a mile from Park View High and just 50 yards from his bus stop when he was shot twice in the back. He later died at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
Saturday morning, after investigators worked through the night, the sheriff’s office announced they had arrested three male suspects from Sterling, Va., including a 17-year-old who is charged with second-degree murder and with using a firearm while committing a felony.
