Teen pleads not guilty in Alameda Halloween killing

A 16-year-old Oakland High School student accused of pulling the trigger in the Halloween night killing of 15-year-old Ichinkhorloo “Iko” Bayarsaikhan pleaded not guilty today in Alameda County Superior Court.

Quochuy Tran is facing charges of murder and special allegations of the use of a firearm in commission of a murder and could face life in prison if convicted. He is only suspect being charged as an adult of six teenagers involved in the case.

Prosecutors say Tran is most responsible for Bayaraikhan's death because he was the shooter in an incident police called a “robbery gone wrong.”

Quochuy Tran found representation today in veteran Oakland defense attorney Robert Neles, who recently represented Ignacio De La Fuente Jr., son of Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente Sr., in a sexual assault case.

The other five teenagers are being prosecuted on murder charges in Juvenile Court and all suspects will be additionally charged with armed robbery, according to juvenile court prosecutor Matt Golde.

Bayarsaikhan, a junior at Alameda High School who emigrated from Mongolia three years ago, was shot at about 10 p.m. on Oct. 31 at Washington Park at 799 Central Ave. in Alameda while she and a group of about 10 friends were being robbed by a large group of suspects, according to police.

Tran is scheduled to reappear in court on Dec. 21 at 9 a.m. for his pretrial hearing. The hearing is scheduled to take place in Department 302 of the Alameda County Superior Court.
