UPDATE (9/19): Leonardo Romero turned himself in last week. Javier Flores is still outstanding.


MISSION – Hidalgo County sheriff’s investigators are on the hunt for two teenagers tied to an attempted kidnapping and drive-by shooting.

Javier Flores and Leonardo Romero are wanted for attempted aggravated kidnapping. Romero is also wanted on deadly conduct charges.

The charges stem from two incidents that happened at a home on the 2200 block of Marc Drive in Mission.

Investigators said the armed men went to the home and demanded a woman to get out of a vehicle on Saturday.

When she didn’t, investigators say one of the armed men fired their weapon and took off.

Days later, deputies said three of the men shot up the same home. No one was hurt in either incident.

If anyone knows where Flores and Romero are, please call Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers at 956-668-8477.
