Jury rules Rhode Island man guilty after Tyreik Grundy shot 6 times, killing him



Tyreik Grundy

Attorney General Peter F. Neronha announced that a Rhode Island man has been found guilty in Providence County Superior Court of the murder of 25-year-old Tyreik Grundy.

On May 9, 2023, following the conclusion of a two-week jury trial before Superior Court Justice Kristen Rodgers, the jury found 32-year-old Quelon Page of Providence guilty of one count of first-degree murder, one count of conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon, one count of discharging a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence, and one count carrying a pistol without a license.

Page is currently being held without bail at the Adult Correctional Institutions pending a sentencing hearing to be held at a later date.

During the trial, the State proved that during the evening of May 14, 2021, Page shot and killed Tyreik Grundy while the victim sat inside a car in a parking lot on Pope Street in Providence.

That evening, the victim and his friend were sitting in the friend’s Nissan Murano SUV parked in a lot across the street from a residence on Pope Street. According to video surveillance footage and witness testimony, Page exited a white coupe, walked up to the SUV, opened the rear passenger door where the victim sat and shot him six times, before fleeing the scene in the same white coupe.

During the investigation, detectives obtained surveillance footage from 18 surrounding properties. Using this footage, investigators identified the white coupe as a newer-model Infiniti, a vehicle which was known to be driven by Page. On May 18, 2021, officers located the Infiniti and seized the coupe along with Page’s cell phone.

After obtaining a search warrant for the phone, investigators determined that Page’s cell phone was in the vicinity of Pope Street at the time of the murder, and the location information was consistent with the movement of the white coupe that night. Investigators also discovered that the search history of Page’s phone included terms related to the murder in the days following the incident.

Based on analysis of the Rhode Island Department of Health forensic biology unit, investigators matched DNA obtained from the rear passenger door of the Nissan SUV to DNA from Page.

Assistant Attorneys General Jeffrey Morin and John Moreira of the Office of the Attorney General and Seargeant Frank Colon and Detective Michael Otrando of the Providence Police Department led the investigation and prosecution of the case.
