WYOMING, Mich. – Weeks after Kelloggsville High School junior Isiah Blue was shot and killed, FOX 17 sat down for an exclusive interview with his accused killer.

Albeit short, 18-year-old Mitchell Savickas sat down to speak with FOX 17.  Savickas is facing a felony murder charge, three counts of armed robbery and a felony firearms charge after allegedly shooting a fleeing Blue during a robbery gone wrong back on the night of January 27th.

16-year-old Daniel Benavides is facing those same charges and 15-year-old Bryshawn Scott is facing three counts of armed robbery. All three will be charged as an adult.

Court documents indicate that those three followed Blue and three friends after they exited a Rapids bus on 44th Street in Wyoming. After trailing them for a short time, Savickas supposedly approached them, showed a weapon, and shot Blue as he tried to run away.

In the interview conducted Monday, Savickas seems uncaring and remorseless, getting up and walking away several times throughout the conversation. He at one point makes an obscene hand gesture towards the camera.

Savickas will appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
