INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An accused hit man charged with killing four people in Indianapolis appeared before a Marion County judge for the first time on Friday.

At a court hearing, John Means asked for a speedy trial. He had his own attorney when he went to court for the hearing.

Investigators say they believe Means was hired as a hit man in two double homicides. Police say they think Means killed four people within four days back in January.

One of the shootings happened at a gas station at 19th and Rural. The other happened at a home on Hovey Street.

Court documents say Means recently bragged about the shootings over the phone while behind bars in Miami County.

Means’ jury trial is scheduled for Dec. 1. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
