A judge sentenced an Indianapolis teenager to 59 years in prison, and three years probation, after his conviction in connection with a February 2013 crime spree.

Sirquain Burr and a 15-year-old accomplice went on the crime spree on the south side in February of 2013.

They shot and killed a man in his Southport driveway, then drove off in a stolen car. Prosecutors say Burr also shot another man out walking his dog on the west side.

Police caught the pair after they crashed the stolen getaway car in Brownsburg.

Burr, who was 17 at the time of the crimes, was convicted on charges of murder, attempted murder, robbery, attempted robbery, auto theft and carrying a gun without a license.

Burr's mother says although her son has been in trouble before, her family never anticipated anything like the violent crime spree ever happening.

"No matter what we teach our kids, they go their own paths. But we are pretty sure God is watching over him," said Tyaese Dunn, Burr's mother.

Dunn says she asked juvenile court to detain her son last year when he ran into trouble with the law.
