INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Sept. 24, 2015)– The man convicted in the murder of an Indianapolis father-to-be pleaded guilty Thursday to a separate shooting.

Simeon Adams, 18, pleaded guilty to carrying a handgun without a license and aggravated battery in the March 30, 2014 shooting of Erick Douglas. The court dropped an attempted murder charge.

Adams was sentenced to 55 years in prison for the murder of Nathan Trappuzzano. Douglas’ shooting occurred just two days before Trapuzzano’s murder. Court documents link Adams to a theft at a west side gun store on March 22 in which about 30 guns were stolen.  Preliminary results showed the same gun that killed Trapuzzano was also used in the shooting of Douglas.

A sentencing hearing for Thursday’s guilty plea is set for October 9.
