SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A grand jury indicted Marcus Donte Reed of Shreveport for three counts of First Degree Murder. The charges are in connection with the August 17th murder of the three Adams brothers.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office says 33 year old Marcus Reed knew the brothers, and shot and killed all three of them Monday night in the driveway of his girlfriend's home. The news of their deaths shocked family members, in how they were killed, and the reason they were killed.

"It was something you might see on a very violent TV show," said Caddo Parish Sheriff, Steve Prator. Investigators say Reed mistakenly thought that the brothers were responsible for stealing a video game system and burglarized his girlfriend's home.

And for that investigators say Reed, armed with an SKS assault style rifle - waited in the woods, and when the Adams pulled up in the driveway, investigators say that's when Reed opened fire. Coroner, Dr. Todd Thoma says all three victims died from multiple gunshot wounds.  

The home was said to be burglarized, but the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office says there is no evidence that suggests the Adams brothers were involved.
