Five suspects charged with multiple felonies, including murder, for Denver metro crime spree

Five men, all between the ages of 18 and 21, have been charged with multiple felonies for a Denver metro crime spree in August that left one victim dead and another victim paralyzed.

All of the suspects individually face more than a dozen felony counts, including first-degree murder. All have been charged with violating Colorado’s Organized Crime Control Act, according to a Wednesday news release from the Denver District Attorney’s Office.

Isaiah Freeman, 18, has been charged with 21 felony counts; Samuel Fussell, 18, with 22 felony counts; Seth Larhode, 21, with 15 felony counts; Noah Loepp-Hall, 19, with 25 felony counts; and Aden Sides, 18, with 18 felony counts.

They are charged with going on a crime spree on Aug.17 in Denver, Aurora and Lakewood, including car jackings, robberies, assaults and the shooting death of 18-year old Shmuel Silverberg in west Denver.

Another victim, Thomas Young, was beaten, robbed and shot near East Colfax Avenue and Lafayette Street. Young is paralyzed with a spinal cord injury and it’s unknown if he’ll be able to walk again, according to a GoFundMe page organized by his family to help with medical expenses.

Before the shooting, Young was an avid runner, hiker and bicyclist who enjoyed Colorado’s great outdoors, the GFM page said.

“He will need months to years of rehabilitation in order to learn to live this new life of his,” family said. “Due to this heinous assault, he will need to move to a new residence since he will not be able to access his current residence on the second floor.”
