NEW YORK -

The Denver Police Department announced the arrest of 4 of the 5 suspects in the crime spree Tuesday night which took the life of Shmuel Silverberg, a talmid of the Yeshiva Toras Chaim of Denver.

The police said that the 4 suspects, Isaiah Freeman, Seth Larhode, Aden Sides and Noah Loepp-Hall, who range between the ages of 18 and 21, are being held for investigation of First Degree Murder, First Degree Assault, First Degree Auto Theft, Felony Menacing, First Degree Burglary, and Burglary. An arrest warrant has been issued for a fifth suspect, 18-year-old Samuel Fussell, for his involvement in all of these crimes. The Denver Police confirmed that the suspects met each other while in the Lookout Mountain Youth Services facility for previous offences.

The police maintained that the crimes appear to be random, and that do not seem to be bias-motivated. However, if evidence is discovered that it was bias-motivated, the Denver Police Department will work with the DA on adding appropriate charges.

“The suspects were taken into custody after Denver Police investigators, members of our Crime Lab, the Denver District Attorney’s Office, and local and federal partners worked tirelessly during the past 36 hours to identify and arrest these suspects,” said Chief Paul M. Pazen.

Two of the three vehicles involved in the crime spree were recovered. The maroon Honda CRV was recovered in the 1200 block of South Tejone and the blue Toyota Camry was recovered in Aurora. The police are still looking for the 1998 gray Toyota Rav 4.
