Oregon teen sentenced in swastika attack


Published:

PORTLAND, Ore. – A 14-year-old boy accused with three other Oregon teens of shooting a fellow high school student with a BB gun and carving a swastika into his forehead will serve 10 years at the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility.

The sentence stems from the February assault of 16-year-old Dustyn Murrain.

Murrain said a girl lured him into a shed, where three boys beat him with a crowbar and shot him with the BB gun. One of them carved a swastika into his forehead with a box cutter. Murrain was able to escape and run to a nearby store.

KATU reports it was the 14-year-old who held the gun to Murrain’s head during the assault.

The other teens are charged as adults and will go to trial later this month.
