The 16-year-old above is a monster who is now in police custody for a spree of armed robberies where he shot his victims, twice each.
Simeon Adams is the poster child for why we carry.
There are monsters out there.
Monsters who should have been run through a wood chipper at an early age, but who are instead preying upon innocent people for their “nourishment”.
This monster shot and killed a 24-year-old newlywed with a good job and a pregnant wife at home in Indianapolis on April 1st. If his victim Nathan Trapuzzano had a concealed carry piece and better situational awareness, his story would probably have had an entirely different ending.
Instead, Trapuzzano was shot and left for dead. And he died.
Ironically, the same kid was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to *his own* neck hours later. Did he pull the same stunt with a CCW holder who perforated him or was it a fellow criminal. We don’t know at this point, but will be heading over to INGO to see if they know.
Sadly, Simeon’s injuries weren’t fatal.

Simeon Adams, 16, was arrested and charged as an adult Tuesday for the brutal murder of 24-year-old Nathan Trapuzzano on April 1.
A 16-year-old boy has been arrested and charged as an adult with the senseless murder of a 24-year-old newlywed and father-to-be while he was taking a walk last week in Indiana.
Simeon Adams was found hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his neck only hours after the fatal shooting of Nathan Trapuzzano on April 1, according to Indianapolis police.
The software engineer who was expecting his first child next month was taking a morning walk just before 6 a.m. when Adams allegedly shot him twice in a suspected robbery.
For Trapuzzano’s widow, who’s pregnant with a girl, word of an arrest went from expected relief to renewed anguish once informed of the suspect’s age.
24-year-old Nathan Trapuzzano was shot and killed for no apparent reason while on his early morning walk around his westside Indianapolis neighborhood. Trapuzzano, who was recently married, was expecting his first child with wife Jennifer. Facebook Nathan Trapuzzano, seen with his wife Jennifer, was shot and killed for no apparent reason while enjoying his early morning walk around his westside Indianapolis neighborhood.
“Oh how my already wounded heart aches to hear this,” Jennifer Trapuzzano posted on Facebook Tuesday. “Nate always said one of the greatest crimes in the world today is how many babies grow up without their father. I don’t know this man’s circumstances but it hurts to hear that such a young man could turn to such violence. Please pray for his conversion.”
Shockingly, the shooting of Trappuzzano isn’t the only one Adams is wanted for.
Police say he also faces charges in an unrelated shooting of another man just two days before, on March 30.

According to court documents, Adams used a stolen gun in the killing. Investigators said Adams and another man are accused of stealing several firearms last month from C & C Midwest Firearms in Clermont.
Rev. Charles Harrison with the Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition said he chased Adams and a group of teens out of a gas station parking lot last week. He said Adams had a gun in his hoodie.
“We called 911 because we wanted to alert the police that this young man and some of the other young men that was with him had guns on them,” Harrison said.
Adams has been in handcuffs on and off since 2007. Arrest reports indicate he has continued to get caught with guns, drugs and various stolen goods for years.
Adams’ two gun arrests were both in 2013. In October, police said he was caught with a stolen pistol after he and a friend were zipping around on a scooter near 29th and Harding streets.
Two months later in December, Adams was caught with another gun. Police said a woman’s car was stolen as she fueled up at the Sunoco gas station on Martin Luther King Jr. Street. When the car was found, Adams was nearby with marijuana and a loaded .38-special pistol, police said.
In another arrest last year, Adams was caught carrying a flat-screen TV from a home that had just been burglarized near west 31st Street, records said. Police said he was wearing latex gloves during that crime.
Adams was caught in another stolen car in July and was released to his father without facing any charges.
Before all of those arrests, police were called to the Indianapolis Math and Science Academy on West 38th Street in 2009 as Adams was being expelled from the eighth grade for causing trouble and threatening to kill himself, police said.
Adams’ troubled past dates as far back as 2007 when he was 9 years old. Police said he and three friends were arrested for tossing huge rocks onto traffic from the Interstate-65 bridge at MLK Street.
