A juvenile accused in last week’s citywide crime spree will appear in adult court Wednesday.
Sirquain Burr, 17, is being held for his alleged involvement in two shootings on Feb. 13.
Burr and another juvenile, a 15-year-old boy, allegedly killed 38-year-old John Yingling in the 3300 block of Babette Court. Later that morning, the two teenagers are accusing of shooting another man who was walking his dog in the area of Eagle Creek Reservoir.
The juveniles then led police on a chase that ended in a multi-vehicle crash in Brownsburg, police said.
Burr is expected to be charged as an adult during an initial hearing in Marion County Criminal Court Wednesday.
Burr’s mother told Fox59 she doesn’t believe her son committed the crimes. She said he has been in trouble in the past but was getting his life on track and was going to school. She said he had been living with her and told her he loved her before leaving the house on the day of the alleged crime spree.
Burr’s mother also said she doesn’t know the 15 year-old who is accused of committing the crimes with Burr.
The 15-year-old suspect is expected in juvenile court Thursday morning.
