Bike riding, teenage hit man pleads guilty to murder

June 10, 2009

By Tony Blais, Court Bureau

An Edmonton teenage hit man pleaded guilty to first-degree murder this morning for shooting a young man in the head after luring him to a drug deal.

The 18-year-old baby-faced killer, who wore a nice shirt and had his short hair gelled, said “guilty” in a clear, firm voice when the charge was formally read out in court.

He was 17 at the time of the July 24, 2007, slaying and cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Crown prosecutor Anne Shutte said she would be seeking an adult sentence while defence lawyer Kirk MacDonald said he wants his client sentenced as a youth.

According to agreed facts, the youth “in exchange for a minimum of $7,000, was contracted to shoot and kill Brandon Dierich.”

Shutte said Dierich was a dial-a-doper at the time and known by his street name “Bruce.”

Between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on July 24, 2007, the teen “lured” the 23-year-old victim to a drug buy near near 93 Street and 68 Avenue.

Then, after Dierich drove to the scene, the youth rode up on a bicycle and pumped two bullets into his head.

At the time of the slaying, police said the killer fled the scene on his bicycle into nearby Mill Creek ravine. He was arrested later at West Edmonton Mall.

Cops also said the killing was drug related and both the killer and the victim were known to them.

Police photos shown in court depicted Dierich slumped in the driver’s seat clutching a $20 bill with packets of cocaine strewn around the car.

Court heard a sentencing hearing will be set for 2009.

Friends of Dierich said he liked to frequent Whyte Avenue bars, especially Bar Wild, and would often do his patented backflips while drinking in the clubs.
