Gang members arrested after drive-by shooting near Edinburg
EDINBURG — Two gang members faced felony charges Tuesday after an alleged retaliatory drive-by shooting.
Suspected Tri-City Bombers gang members Jaime Perez, 17, and his girlfriend Mariela Torres, 19, were charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon Tuesday.
The couple allegedly drove by the 4100 block of Buck Drive, north of Edinburg, about 9 p.m. Monday and shot at three members the Chicanos, a rival gang, said Hidalgo County Sherriff Lupe Treviño.
The pair allegedly shot at Chicano gang members Luis Ramirez, 28, Johnny Lee Morales, 24, and his brother, 18-year-old Anthony Morales.
Ramirez suffered several gunshot wounds during the attack. He remained at Brooks Army Medical Center in San Antonio on Tuesday with non-life threatening injuries to his face, deputies said.
The victims were outside Morales’ home when Perez allegedly opened fire as Torres drove the vehicle, investigators said.
The suspects told investigators they shot at Morales’ house after a previous drive-by shooting by the victims a couple of weeks ago, Treviño said. Deputies continue to investigate whether that claim is true.
“We’re researching it,” he said. “The search is not being very fruitful so maybe it’s a self-serving justification. Maybe it did not happen and they made it up.”
The sheriff said the victims could also face criminal charges if investigators can connect them to the alleged shooting that triggered Monday night’s attack.
“Just because they were victims in this one, does not absolve them from any culpability in prior drive-bys, if they do exist,” the sheriff said.
The drive-by shooting exposes the threat local gangs have on the community, Treviño added.
“They pose a much greater, deadly threat to the people in Hidalgo County than any Mexican drug cartel,” the sheriff said.
Perez and Torres were formally charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon at an arraignment hearing Tuesday morning at the Hidalgo County Jail.
Bond for Perez, who has a criminal record, was set at $50,000. Torres’ bond was set at $25,000.

9/26/2010 - HAZELTON, PA - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - IT'S ILLEGAL TO ARREST AN ILLEGAL ALIEN. IT'S ILLEGAL TO ARREST OR PUNISH THOSE WHO HIRE OR RENT TO ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." --Theodore Roosevelt
"This nation is in danger of becoming a Third World nightmare with all the corruption, disease, illiteracy, violence and balkanization known all over the world. We need a 10-year moratorium on all immigration to catch our collective breath and we need deportation of over 10 million illegal aliens in a slow and orderly fashion." --Ed Garrison
“The 1987 amnesty was a failure; rather than reducing illegal immigration, it led to an increase,” FAIR stated. “Any new amnesty measure will further weaken respect for our immigration laws. Therefore, all amnesty measures must be defeated.” --Frosty Wooldridge
