An Oregon grand jury has been indicted on second-degree murder and other charges on last week. 27-year-old Ian Mackenzie Cranston has been accused of shooting Barry Khristiano Washington, 22, Black man, in September in Bend, Oregon. Cranston was arrested following the indictment by a Deschutes County grand jury. Bend Police arrested Cranston on a warrant charging him with second-degree murder, first- and second-degree manslaughter, first-degree assault and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.
District Attorney John Hummel says there isn’t enough evidence to charge Cranston, who is white, with a bias crime. He said at a news conference that Cranston’s mother Lawanda Roberson “thanked God” after learning about the jury’s decision, KTVZ reported.
