DANVILLE (WSLS 10) - A Danville teenager has pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including first-degree murder in connection to a deadly shooting in June.

Evin Javahn Shaw, 18, of Danville, Va., is charged with first-degree murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, statutory burglary, and grand larceny in the case.

As we've reported, at 4:20 a.m. Thursday, June 4 officers responded to Rocklawn Place in reference to a person being shot.

Upon arrival they found Bennie Wesley Sigmon, 48, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in his driveway.

Sigmon had reportedly went outside to confront three people who were trespassing on his property. Sigmon confronted the group and that's when police say Shaw shot Sigmon multiple times. Sigmon was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Shaw and the other suspects, Maurice Anthony Williams, Jr., 17, and Kadarius Kipree Ferrell, 18  fled the scene before police arrived.

Williams and Ferrell's cases are scheduled to go before a grand jury at the end of October.

Authorities say their investigation revealed the three had burglarized another home on the same street around the time of the shooting.

Shaw is due back in court on October 26, 2015 for sentencing.
