A teen who was an alleged accomplice in the shooting deaths of four people last summer has been found guilty.
17-year-old Jordyn Wade was found guilty of aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and kidnapping.
The teenager was accused of helping a 27-year-old accomplice rob five people, then stand with his gun drawn while the accomplice allegedly shot the victims. One victim survived.
35-year-old Angela D. Harrison, 18-year-old Tyajah Nelson, 26-year-old Daniel Sharp and 41-year-old Michael Ballour were all found shot to death at a home on East Hudson Street on June 13.
Wade, who was being tried as an adult, had pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The accused gunman, Robert Adams, fled to Mississippi after the slayings and was captured last August by U.S. Marshals. They say Adams was found “cowering in a bedroom closet, surrounded by piles of clothes.”
Adams told investigators Wade was responsible for the shootings. However, court records show the only surviving victim, a now 15-year-old girl, identified the killer as Adams.
