The law has caught up to a teenager who threw bricks at three men riding their bicycles in northeast Portland back in April.
16-year-old Marquise D’Angelo Murphy was picked up by police in Keizer, Oregon Tuesday night in connection with a shooting at a high school in north Portland on December 12th. Murphy was also arrested by Portland Police on April 20th for his role in the brick-throwing incident that injured Adrian Richardson.
Richardson was biking on NE Tillamook with two friends when Murphy and Robert Hudgens threw pieces of bricks at him. Murphy’s brick missed, but Hudgens’ didn’t. Hudgens was tried as an adult, found guilty of a Measure 11 felony and sentenced to four years in prison last month. Because his brick did not make contact with Richardson, Murphy was only charged with second-degree assault and entered into the juvenile detention system. He had been on probation since June.
The Portland Police Bureau found Murphy in Keizer and took him into custody for a probation violation while the investigation into last week’s shooting continues.
