The trial for the murder of 19-year-old Larnell Bruce started yesterday in Oregon. In court, surveillance footage showed Russell Courtier and his girlfriend Colleen Hunt chase down Bruce in a Jeep and run him over.
It all began on the evening of August 10. Bruce, who was new to Gresham, stood outside the convenience store and charged his phone. He was then approached by Hunt and Courtier. Almost immediately, a fight broke out between them and Bruce's head was smashed into the window. He then took off running on foot. Not soon after, he was fatally struck by Courtier's Jeep.
The couple faces charges of murder and first- and second-degree intimidation, which are classified as hate crimes.
