According to court documents, Freeman, Fussell, and three others began their multi-day crime spree on Aug. 15 by carjacking and shooting a man while he sat in his car in the parking lot of an Aurora gym. The suspects were accused of committing a number of crimes two days later, police said.
Two days later on Aug. 17, they were connected to a break-in at an auto shop, a carjacking on East Colfax Avenue in Denver, and a robbery that resulted in a shooting on North Lafayette Street. The victim in that incident was left paralyzed.
After those crimes, the suspects fatally shot 18-year-old Shmuel Silverberg at Yeshiva Toras Chaim School located at 1555 North Stuart St. around 11:30 p.m.
About an hour later, at 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 18. the suspects were connected to a burglary at a Lakewood business.
Both Freeman and Fussell are scheduled for sentencing on May 31. The other three defendants, Noah Loepp-Hall, Seth Larhode and Aden Sides, entered guilty pleas last month. They'll also be sentenced that day.
