Yesterday, a Multnomah County Grand Jury indicted 21-year-old Corey Hill and 21-year-old Antonio Lorenzo Sanders Jr. for the murder of 24-year-old Precious Jackson.

Hill and Sanders were already in custody at the Multnomah County Jail on unrelated charges at the time of the indictment.

This investigation began on Friday November 1, 2013, at 1:38 a.m., when East Precinct officers responded to numerous calls reporting gunshots in the area of Southeast 124th Avenue and Powell Boulevard.

Homicide detectives were able to develop information leading to Thursday's indictment of Hill and Sanders.

They will be arraigned on Monday November 25, 2013 on charges of Murder (With a Firearm) and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
