What the HELL people? Since when does a $250 gaming console constitute murder?
On Monday, three brothers were found in a Chevy Malibu at roughly 10 pm–all three had been killed. The brothers, Jerimiah Adams (20), Jarquis Adams (18), and Jean Adams (13), were shot by a man who was waiting for them in the woods (located adjacent to where the car was parked). The owner of the gun was a man named Marcus Donté Reed.
The 33-year-old man allegedly murdered the Adams brothers because he had reason to believe that one of them had stolen an Xbox 360 from his girlfriend’s house.
This is not Reed’s first encounter with the law–he was previously convicted three years ago. In 2007, the man was involved in yet another car shootout, eventually being charged with the illegal use of a weapon.
Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator offers some particularly harsh words concerning these crime,
“The only thing that could have prevented this from happening is (him) not being born.”
If Reed is convicted for these recent murders, he will face the death penalty.
