Stolen 360 Leads to Execution of Three Brothers

August 18, 2010 -

The small Louisiana town of Keithville, located in the northwest corner of the state near the Texas border, is the location of a grisly murder scene that started with a stolen Xbox 360 and ended with the death of three brothers late Monday night.

Jerimiah (20), Jarquis (18) and Jean (13) Adams were all found shot to death in a car, victims of thirty-three year old alleged gunman Marcus Donté Reed (pictured). The Shreveport Times reports that Reed lay in wait for the brothers and opened fire on the car with an assault rifle because he thought at least one of the Adams trio was responsible for stealing Reed's Xbox 360 from his girlfriend’s home on Monday.

The house of Reed’s lady friend was described as a local hangout and it was reported that the Adams boys may have been at the house on that day, though Sheriff Steve Prator said,” We don't have any indication they were actually in the house that night,” adding, “I'm not sure the extent of the relationship they had.”

Reed had a previous felony conviction in 2007 for illegal use of a weapon/dangerous instrument following a shootout he had with another vehicle. At that time, Reed was armed with an assault rifle with “one round in the chamber and 35 in the magazine.”

Prator added, “There are some things all of the patrol cars in the world can't prevent. The only thing that could have prevented this from happening is (him) not being born.”

That is fricken messed up!

"Assault rifle"?  Nice try, gun control weasels.  An SKS is a semiautomatic rifle.  Assault rifles must, by definition, be capable of automatic fire.  And while I haven't seen any pictures of the actual gun he used, I'm very skeptical that it had any of the cosmetic features that would make it an "assault weapon" under that absurd, and rightly expired law.  I'm getting sick and tired of the media constantly obfuscating this issue with unclear and alarmist terminology.

I'm getting sick and tired of gun nuts thinking that terminology matters.  Most people who read these articles (or write them for that matter) could barely describe the difference between a pistol and a rifle, much less get into the finer details.

No need to get worked up.  The press is not conspiring with gun control weasels. They just don't know.

"victims of thirty-three year old alleged". Wow. So he's alledgedly the shooter, yet they were his victims?

"The only thing that could have prevented this from happening is (him) not being born." So this guy is guilty until proven innocent + society is 100% incapable of preventing murders if the murderer is alive. The fact he had a gun don't factor in, nor (bad) luck and timing, etc. Great Sheriff there...

That's what I love about elected people. Their job isn't to do well what their job title seems to indicate, but rather to be elected and re-elected. That's their primary purpose.

lomdrPretty much, Andrew. And hell, it helps that it is a bit reasonably priced too. $8 for 1, $12 for both at once08/28/2014 - 3:43am

MaskedPixelanteSo, there's been massive positive reception to the Mario Kart 8 DLC bundle. Somehow, I doubt it would have gotten as much positive buzz if they called it a "Season Pass".08/27/2014 - 9:34pm

MechaTama31Haven't been to GOG in a while. Their website reminds me of the old Zune software now...08/27/2014 - 6:01pm
Andrew EisenAlso, I know it's nitpicking but only ONE of the 21 movies on offer goes for $15. Four more are $10 and the rest are $6. But right now, all of them are $6 (except for two that are free).08/27/2014 - 3:22pm
E. Zachary KnightMasked, What are you talking about? I guess you never buy DVDs either?08/27/2014 - 3:21pm
Andrew EisenNot if they've hired more people.08/27/2014 - 3:13pm
MaskedPixelantePlus, now that they're negotiating movies, that's LESS manpower to negotiate true, pre-2000, non-console-port classics.08/27/2014 - 3:08pm
MaskedPixelanteNo rewatch value, once you've seen it there's no reason to rewatch it, and it's 15 bucks down the drain.08/27/2014 - 3:06pm
E. Zachary KnightIndie movies are a great start. They need a great distribution system too.08/27/2014 - 3:04pm
Andrew EisenEven if that were true, so what?08/27/2014 - 3:01pm
MaskedPixelanteYou do realize that there are going to be NO Hollywood movies on this service, right? It's all going to be indie documentaries and stuff like that.08/27/2014 - 2:56pm
Andrew EisenI think it's an awesome next step for GOG and completely fail to see why anyone finds it problematic or improper.08/27/2014 - 2:51pm
