Henderson was charged with five counts of aggravated murder and he admitted to everything. 

Henderson was arrested six months after he killed his best friend, Ja'Rio Taylor, 18, Lemon Bryant, 60, Shaylona Williams, 17, and Ja'Rio's mom, 41-year old Sherita Johnson, who was pregnant at the time. A little girl, 9-years-old at the time, was grazed by a bullet after he spotted her entering the E. 92nd home. A 2-year-old inside the car with Johnson was unharmed.

After Henderson killed the victims, prosecutors say he sat down to eat. The judge also questioned why Henderson would take pictures of the victims after they were killed. 

Henderson was arrested at a McDonald's in Lakewood, nearly six months after the deadly shooting. He still had the murder weapon in his belt.
