Portland police are hoping to stimulate new interest in an unusual homicide.

Police Chief James Craig plans a news conference for 11 a.m. Thursday about the death of Darien Richardson.

Richardson was shot in the leg on Jan. 8 during a home invasion at her home on Rackleff Street. She died of complications from her injuries on Feb. 27 while vacationing in Miami, Fla.

The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office indicated a blood clot had blocked a vital artery, and that the clot was the result of the gunshot wound she suffered.

Richardson was one of two residents who were shot by intruders at 25 Rackleff St. She was wounded in the upper thigh and thumb, and a bullet grazed the man she was with in the upper arm. Two other people who were in the apartment escaped injury.

The armed intruders remain at large. Police hope that someone has information that might help solve the case.
