Shreveport man found guilty in three murders

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A Caddo Parish jury has found a Shreveport man guilty in the deadly shooting of three brothers over an X-Box gaming system.

The jury deliberated about an hour Tuesday before finding Marcus Donte Reed guilty on 3 counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 18-year-old Jarquis Adams, 20-year-old Jeremiah Adams, and 13-year-old Gene Adams.

The brothers were shot and killed on Aug. 17, 2010 as they pulled into the driveway of Reed's girlfriend's home in Keithville.

At the time, investigators said that Reed mistakenly thought that the brothers were responsible for stealing a video game system and burglarized his girlfriend's home.

The same jury convenes Wednesday to determine his punishment.

Reed faces the possibility of the death penalty or life in prison.
