Gas Station Shooting Suspect Pleads Guilty to Murder, Robbery Charges

The suspect in a fatal shooting at a west side gas station last year has pleaded guilty to murder and robbery charges.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office says Shayne Thompson pleaded guilty in the shooting at the BP gas station at West 38th Street and North High School Road on September 25, 2013.  The shooting left clerk Evalide Ndyiae dead.

Thompson also pleaded guilty in the robbery of a Speedway gas station at 71st Street and Keystone Avenue on the same night.  He also pleaded guilty to burglary, robbery and criminal confinement charges for his role in a home invasion on the city's east side in the same month.

Under the terms of the plea, Thompson could serve up to 110 years in prison but will spend no less than 65 years behind bars.

Two other suspects were also charged in the gas station robbery and murder.  Janai Hudson has pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.  He is awaiting sentencing.  Ryan Clark is awaiting trial for his role in the incident.
