Criminal Justice Quote: Teen Commits Execution Style Murder

     Witnesses told police that a Cheyenne, Wyoming man with a gunshot wound to his stomach was begging for his life when a 16-year-old who had opened fire into a group of teens shot him in the head at point-blank range.

     Philip Sam was in court Wednesday October 8, 2014 on a first-degree murder charge in the death of 19-year-old Tyler Burns. He is being tried as an adult. Sam was at a park the previous Sunday night for a fight. He fired his gun at a group of teens that had gathered there. One of the bullets hit Burns in the stomach. The suspect told a detective that he shot Burns in the head because he didn't want him to suffer.
