Three men suspected in a gang-related shooting this month outside an Oregon high school for homeless and other vulnerable students are facing attempted murder and other charges, Portland police said on Monday.
Police said the Dec. 12 shooting, which left four people injured, erupted following a dispute outside Rosemary Anderson High School.
Sixteen-year-old Marquise D’Angelo Murphy, 18-year-old Marquel Diamond Dugas and 22-year-old Lonzo Murphy face attempted murder, assault, and four counts each of unlawful use of a weapon, among other charges, police said in a statement.
Portland Police Bureau spokesman Pete Simpson said the suspects are expected to be arraigned on Tuesday in Multnomah County Court. A grand jury was underway to consider the charges.
Three of those hurt have since been discharged from the hospital, police said on Monday. A fourth victim was grazed and did not go to the hospital.
Dugas and Lonzo Murphy, Marquise’s brother, were arrested on Dec. 13. Marquise Murphy was arrested on Dec. 16. All are being held on probation violations pending the investigation, police said.
Police have said they believe the shooting was gang related but they have not released details as to what the dispute was about.
Rosemary Anderson High School serves “at-risk” students including some who are homeless or have been expelled from or dropped out of mainstream schools.

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘We’re Going to Fight to Repeal the Hyde Amendment’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) started a petition Saturday seeking to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars the use of federal funds for abortions, arguing the restriction overwhelmingly harms low-income Americans and women of color. AOC emailed her supporters:
“Since 1976, our government has banned federal funding for abortion care — specifically, for Medicaid recipients. Countless studies have shown that due to this amendment, millions of women have been forced to go through with pregnancies that, given the funding, they would have otherwise terminated. "
Huge Hong Kong rally kicks off as public anger boils
Tens of thousands of people rallied in central Hong Kong on Sunday as public anger seethed following unprecedented clashes between protesters and police over an extradition law, despite a climbdown by the city's embattled leader.
Protesters chanted "Scrap the evil law!" as they marched through the streets to pile more pressure on chief executive Carrie Lam, who paused work on the hugely divisive bill Saturday after days of mounting pressure, saying she had misjudged the public mood.
Crowds of black-clad protesters were marching from a park on the main island to the city's parliament -- a repeat of a massive demonstration a week earlier that organisers said more than a million people attended.
Israel PM’s wife Sara Netanyahu convicted of misusing public funds
An Israeli court Sunday convicted the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of fraudulently using state funds for meals, under a plea bargain which saw her admit to lesser charges.
Sara Netanyahu was found guilty of exploiting the mistake of another person and ordered to pay a fine and compensation, in a deal approved by Jerusalem magistrates' court justice Avital Chen.
Netanyahu was also fined 10,000 shekels ($2,800) and ordered to reimburse the state a further 45,000 shekels, the latter of which she will pay in nine installments, at her request.
