Update: We've just gotten confirmation from the Denver District Attorney's Office that Lonnie White, seventeen, will be charged as an adult in the murder of Reysean Abram, thirteen. Continue for our previous coverage.

Update, 11:53 a.m.: Last week, we told you about the arrests of Marquise Lewis and two juveniles in the murder of thirteen-year-old Reysean Abram, seen here, who was shot to death while riding his bike; see our previous coverage below.

Now, Lewis has been accused of murder as an adult, while the other pair -- identified as Lonnie White, seventeen, and Keon Belton, fifteen -- have been charged with the same offense as juveniles. However, White's status could still change.

On the evening of August 30, as we've reported, Abram had reportedly climbed onto his bike and pedaled away from a party in his neighborhood where a fight had taken place.

Before he could reach his destination, he was fatally shot in the chest, just days shy of his fourteenth birthday.

Days later, the Denver Police Department named Lewis and announced his arrest. He was subsequently slapped with a first-degree-murder beef and was scheduled to be formally advised of the charge earlier this morning.

Meanwhile, the Denver District Attorney's Office has identified the other twosome thought to have contributed to Abrams's death as White and Belton; they've both been charged with murder as juveniles. Because Belton is only fifteen, he's likely to remain in the juvie system, but because White will mark his eighteenth birthday on January 2, 2014, a DA's office release says he could have his charge upgraded by week's end.

At this writing, a spokesperson is checking to see if such a change has been made. If and when we hear back, we'll update this post. See our previous coverage below.

Original post, 6:04 a.m. September 4: The Denver Police Department doesn't send out many press releases after 1 a.m. But his morning was an exception to that rule.

The DPD has announced that three people -- Marquise Lewis, thirty, and two juveniles -- have been arrested in the August 30 murder of Reysean Abram, a Montbello thirteen year old shot while riding his bike. Meanwhile, Abram's Facebook page has become both a memorial and an online debating forum about gang affiliation. Get details and see photos and a video below.

Near the scene of the crime.
This past Friday evening, according to the DPD, officers were called to the 4700 block of Enid Way after receiving a shooting report.

The cops soon found a thirteen year old later ID'd as Abram suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Abram had reportedly attended a party at which a fight had taken place. He was riding his bike home when he was shot in the chest.

His fourteenth birthday would have taken place yesterday.

In the days that followed, Abram's Facebook page became a repository for his loved one's grief. Among the images posted are this one....

...and this one:

The pic at the center of this T-shirt isn't the only one on the page in which Abram can be seen making hand gestures that seem to be gang signs -- and comments posted on a number of them after his death bring up the topic. Take this photo:

One of the comments on the page reads:
1st yes he rolled with Eastside but he never rolled with the ones who murdered and he wasnt a murderer. He went to church but he never had his mind on killing.... It was his money, music,& school he had his mind on because of his beautiful mom. And God said "as you confess thy'll sin he should never repent you." Don't go bible on me ik & he loves ALL His children no matter what.
This post generated a number of passionate replies.

He was [proclaimed to be in a Gang. The Gang Life Caught up with him. Maybe people will realize being in a Gang is just dumb. It doesnt make you Legit Money. It will get you murdered or in prison or disabled. Its sad that hes gone but he set himself up for it.

Ah, more black on black crime. Will our fearless leader interrupt national TV to tell us he he had a second son, he'd look like Reysean? Here's a hint, I doubt you hear a peep. Same if it were two white people or two mexican people killing each other.

@iloveyou24 Respect is something that is earned, moron. One does not earn respect by being an idiot punk-ass gangbanger and getting oneself killed. Find yourself a remedial English class, or possible an ESL class. You are going nowhere fast.

@iloveyou24  I feel sad for you writing like this, it just makes you look unintelligent   You should really focus on your education and being a contributing member of society.

FIRS? BABIEE? You are a fucking idiot. I hope 10 more just like him die this month. If you run with a bad crowd, (GANG), you will likely get eaten up by the activities of that group. Gangs are fucking stupid. While this kid might have been "good" at 13, he was headed in the direction of not so good. Statistics don't lie. Keep killing each other up in Bello or the Points or Aurora. Saves taxpayers from having to support his dumb ass when he'd have gotten life with no possibility in 5 years. Good riddance. And zy: Learn to spell...you make your age group and race look incredibly fucking stupid.

'cause you can'? that is certainly a good reason to not only invent rediculous word spellings but further to elongate words like ride and baby. I didn't say 'black' kids anywhere in my post. You read it to say that. Whatever the race, if you are going to throw gang signs and run with a bad crowd you might get shot. That was all I was saying. And how fucking stoned is this kid in every gang sign laden picture that was published of him? If someone I loved was in a gang I'd expect them to wind up dead and further would try to encourage them to avoid a gang at all costs. If this person was so important to you then you fail him by not doing that. And BTW: Ima is an old lady's name.
