Community members were set to gather Monday night at the corner where Barry Washington Jr. was killed one year ago. The gathering is set for 6:00 p.m. at NW Wall Street and Oregon Ave.
Cranston has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, second-degree manslaughter, first-degree assault, and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.
Cranston is set to go to trial Nov. 1. The trial is expected to last for around two weeks.
A Deschutes County Circuit Court judge ruled recently to allow video evidence from the defense in the trial after the prosecution claimed videos told an incomplete story.
It was also ruled that evidence about an encounter in which Washington cursed and gave a profane hand gesture police officers earlier that evening would be excluded from the trial.
Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel was unwilling to comment on the case Monday, so close to the trial date.
Attempts to reach the attorneys for Cranston and for Washington’s mother were not returned.
