A Tacoma, Wash., gang member has been added to the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

Santiago Mederos, 26, was charged in 2010 with killing two people in separate shootings. He has been on the run ever since.

“The victims who lost their lives in 2010 were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Jay Tabb, Jr. said Monday at a press conference at Tacoma police headquarters, the News Tribune reports

“Despite having no connection to street gangs they were senselessly targeted by Mederos.”

The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for his arrest.
