Second Teen Sentenced To 51 Years In Indianapolis Crime Spree

Last updated on Thursday, July 17, 2014

(INDIANAPOLIS) - One of the suspects in a 2013 crime spree which left one man dead and another injured was sentenced to 51 years in prison Wednesday.

16-year-old Gabriel Edwards pleaded guilty in June to charges of murder, attempted murder and robbery for his involvement in the crime spree in February 2013. His co-defendant, 19-year-old Sirquain Burr was sentenced last Friday to 59-years in prison plus a nine-year suspended sentence on charges of murder, aggravated battery and robbery.

Court documents say Edwards and Burr committed several robberies and car thefts between February 1 and February 12, 2013.

On February 13, they shot John Yingling in the driveway of his south side home and injured another man near Dandy Trail on the city's west side.

The two were arrested after crashing a stolen car during a police chase in Hendricks County.
