DENVER - Two men now admit they opened fire into a group of people last year, resulting in two deaths and two injuries.
The victims were standing near the corner of Bruce Randolph Avenue and York Street when the shots were fired on May 25, 2012 at about 2 p.m. Justin O’Donnell, 21, and Deon Rudd, 30, were killed.
At the time, Kevin O'Donnell told 7NEWS he was a few blocks away when he heard the shots and ran to find his cousin lying on the sidewalk.
"I had to watch my little cousin die," Kevin O'Donnell said.
"He was at the wrong place at the wrong time," said O'Donnells friend, Korino Samuels, in an interview after the shooting. "They took the wrong man, him and Deon. Deon was a good dude, too."
Marquise Lovelle Davis, 24, and Denzel Richardson, 21, were identified as suspects and arrested a few days after the shooting. According to the Denver DA's Office, Richardson pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of second-degree murder. Davis pleaded guilty Thursday to those charges and one count of retaliation against a witness.
Davis faces 64 years in prison when he is sentenced on Sept. 26, 2013, and Richardson faces 60 years in prison when he is sentenced on Sept. 27, 2013.
