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.
