A Columbus, Ohio, teen is being tried as an adult in connection with a quadruple homicide in June.

Now, 17-year-old Jordyn Wade is facing multiple counts of murder, among other charges, but he cannot receive the death penalty because he's a minor.

Wade is said to have a list of past offenses. Authorities believe another shooter was also involved with the homicides. The second suspect, Robert Lee Adams Jr.,  has been indicted on similar charges.
