4 plead not guilty in Gresham teen's death

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An adult and three minors charged in the death of an Oregon teenager have pleaded not guilty to murder.

Police arrested 20-year-old Isai Guzman-Ramirez and the three teens on Saturday after 17-year-old Jose Ricardo Morales was found dead on a Gresham sidewalk. He had been shot with a .22 caliber rifle.

According to court documents, the shooting stemmed from a dispute earlier in the evening in which Morales ran up to a vehicle and punched one of the teens in the face.

Court documents say at least two of the defendants are gang members.
