A manhunt is underway for a 19-year-old suspect wanted for a mass shooting at a popular flea market in Pearland, Texas that killed a 10-year-old boy and injured four others on Sunday (Nov. 12).
Yesterday (Nov. 13), the Pearland Police Department announced that two other teenagers were arrested in connection with the deadly shooting. According to Fox 26 Houston, Julianna Espiono, 18, and Cruz Meza, 18, who was among the people who were hit by gunfire, were charged with tampering with physical evidence and making a false statement to a peace officer.
Authorities identified David Negrete as the possible shooter. He is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is listed on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s top 10 fugitives. “He should be considered armed and dangerous,” Chad Rogers of the Pearland Police Department said.
