Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The trial is set for a man accused of killing two people near the Yakima Greenway last year.

Lameiro Flores told investigators he shot Jobany Martinez, 18, and Jose Avilez, 17, because the two had assaulted and threatened him in the past.

Police say Flores had no criminal history before the shooting, but added that the two victims belonged to gangs.

The trial is set for August. Flores faces two counts of murder.
