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.

Andrew EisenWell, what if Konami released MGS 5 with a mandatory $60 plastic peripheral? Do you think that would help?07/05/2015 - 8:09pm
MattsworknameI dont think so, I think that between the lose of iga, kojima, and so forth, i think MGS 5 will be less succesfull then they think, and tha will spell there end.07/05/2015 - 7:08pm
Andrew EisenI'm sure the Metal Gear micro-transactions will keep 'em afloat!07/05/2015 - 6:58pm
MattsworknameKonami is dying, slowly, surely, inevitably. Capcom is in the same situation, and I think that if they don't get there respective acts together, there going to pull a thq and sell off all there IP.07/05/2015 - 6:51pm
Andrew EisenHowever, if you have a gaming PC and like PC gaming, the Wii U is arguably the best console you could get (unless you just don't care for Nintendo's games, of course).07/05/2015 - 6:07pm
Andrew EisenAnyway, if the Wii U is your only gaming platform, yeah, you're missing out on a ton of great stuff.07/05/2015 - 6:06pm
Andrew EisenMatthew is referring to my latest video, if anyone's wondering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkuL1UVHYJA07/05/2015 - 6:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the wiiu may have the best exclusives among consoles, but lack of third party support kills it. now if we want to play the exclusives game, the pc wins, not just in numbers,but some of the best games I have played.07/05/2015 - 5:53pm

Andrew EisenImagine if Nintendo started charging for the Super Guide feature it has in some of it's games. That's what the MGS microtransactions sound like to me.07/05/2015 - 12:36pm

InfophileI know the ZE series was in the red in Japan, but international series boosted it to profitability. That may not mean it's more profitable in the west, but it does mean ZE3 wouldn't exist without the western market.07/04/2015 - 7:54am
