SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

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

After about an hour of deliberation, the jury found Marcus Donte Reed guilty on all 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 the night of August 17, 2010 as they pulled into the driveway of Reed's girlfriend's home in Keithville.

Prosecutors say Reed was hiding in the woods near his girlfriend's house armed with an SKS assault rifle, and when the brothers pulled into the driveway, Reed came out from hiding and opened fire on the car.

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.

Tuesday's testimony included a forensic pathologist who says the victims were shot several times each with a high-powered weapon, showing the jurors graphic photos of the victims' injuries. The prosecution wanted to make it clear the killings were brutal in this capital murder case.

Reed now faces the death penalty.
