A federal grand jury in Nashville returned a five-count indictment today charging two MS-13 members with murder in aid of racketeering.

Luis Colindres, 21, of Honduras, and Oscar Delgado Flores, 24, of El Salvador were also charged with conspiracy, witness tampering, carrying and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, and causing death through the use of a firearm in connection to the September 24, 2017 shooting that left two men dead at the Maple Crest Apartments.

According to the indictment, Flores and Colindres shot and killed 35-year-old Hector Eduardo Zuniga-Zelaya and 18-year-old Yeri Hernandez-Gabino at the apartment complex on Natchez Court. The two men allegedly killed Hernandez-Gabino so he wouldn't tell police about Zuniga-Zelaya's murder.

Metro Police say that Flores and Colindres, if convicted, face up to life in prison.

Metro Police South Precinct detectives are investigating the case in conjunction with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the DEA, and ICE.
