A 15-year-old teen has been charged with fatal shooting of three men during a drug-related robbery in Indianapolis.

Dominique Miller and Jordan Wright, both 25-years-old, and Justin Crowder, 19, were all murdered with multiple gunshots to the chest and head in an incident that took place on July 16th.

The 15-year-old and several other suspects were trying to rob the contents of a safe in a drug-related burglary, The Indy Star reported.

The teen is one count of murder for each victim, one of murder for each victim in the duration of a robbery, and a charge of theft.

Prosecutors have applied to have the case transferred to adult court, but a hearing to determine that has not yet been scheduled.

A pre-trial hearing in the case has been set for August 23rd.

The victims’ families packed the courtroom on Thursday as parts of the case were revealed, visibly wincing when they heard how their loved ones were killed.

The boy will remain in juvenile custody until his next appearance.

Authorities are still on the hunt for at least one, possibly two more suspects, and have not made revealed additional details about the case.
