They are Gustavo Tijerina, 30, and Ismael Hernandez, 40. After being arraigned Tuesday inside the Willacy County jail library, the men were ordered held without bond. They have been charged with capital murder of a peace officer, attempted murder and other lesser charges.

The pair were living in Texas illegally when Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega Jr. was with his family fishing in Santa Monica.

The men confessed to the robbery and other crimes, Fox News reported.

“They claim to have been involved in other incidents, this means you’ve got stolen vehicles going into Mexico,” Santa Monica, Sheriff Larry Spence said. “Everything is going to be cartel-related, there’s a connection somehow.”

The FBI has ended its investigation of a courtroom shooting that killed suspected gang member Siale Maveni Angilau, the Desert News reports.

Federal authorities determined no excessive force was used when the deputy U.S. marshall shot Angilau four times after he grabbed a pen and charged after a witness who was testifying.

The feds found no evidence that Angilau was shot while on the ground, as claimed by some family members.

“There is no evidence to suggest Angilau was shot while on the ground,” according to the FBI.

Angilau was one of 16 Tongan Crip Gang members who were charged in federal court under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Charges included racketeering, carjacking, robbery, assault on a federal officer and weapons violations.

A Chicago bank teller who was getting robbed gave up more than $1,700.

He’s scheduled to appear in federal court on Friday.
