One of three teenagers who thought they were torching the house of the people who robbed them but instead killed five innocent immigrants including two young children, received his fate on Friday.

A Denver judge sentenced 19-year-old Gavin Seymour to 40 years in prison for the Aug. 5, 2020, fire. Seymour was just 16 years old when he, along with Kevin Bui, also 16 at the time, and then-15-year-old Dillon Siebert, sought revenge on the people who stole Bui’s phone during a drug deal, authorities said.

Somehow, the trio came to believe the robbers lived at a home in Denver’s Green Valley Ranch neighborhood, according to an arrest affidavit. They went to a costume store and bought hockey-style masks and broke into the back door of the home with containers filled with gasoline and doused the walls with the accelerant before setting it ablaze and running away. The home quickly became fully engulfed in flames.
