Pair charged in shooting that killed 2, injured 2
DENVER – The Denver District Attorney on Tuesday formally charged two men in an ambush-style shooting that left two people dead and two others wounded.
Marquise Davis, 23, and Denzel Richardson, 20, each face four counts of first degree murder, four counts of attempted murder (two counts of murder after deliberation and two counts of murder with extreme indifference), two counts of first degree assault, one count of second degree assault and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.
“The charges allege that on May 25, 2012, at about 2 p.m., Davis and Richardson went to the area of Bruce Randolph Avenue and York Street and opened fire into a group of people standing on the sidewalk,” said Denver District Attorney spokesperson Lynn Kimbrough.
Justin O’Donnell and Deon Rudd were killed in the attack. Two other men were wounded.
Davis and Richardson are being held without bond. Their mug shots have not yet been released.
Both are due in court on Thursday to be formally advised of the charges.
