Paris Police are investigating the death of four people who were shot and killed in Paris, Texas late last Wednesday night. They are treating this shooting as a quadruple homicide. Police have not received any tips from the community, which they say is highly unusual, especially considering the number of people murdered.
According to Chief Bob Hundley Jr. with the Paris Police Department, a woman called 911 shortly before 11:30 p.m. to report that someone was bleeding at a house in the 400 block of Northeast Sixth Street.
When authorities arrived at the scene, four victims were found dead toward the front of the home, all with gunshot wounds. The female 911 caller had come by the house to visit one of the male victims.
“This was a pretty violent situation. I’ve been a police officer here for 39 years . I can’t recall any multiple homicides that we’ve had,” said Chief Bob Hundley.
The victims were identified as 18-year-old Romello Dewain Steward of Paris, 21-year-old Devante Larry Adkins of Paris, 24-year-old Brijonne Rashad Woods of Paris and 32-year-old Billy Charles Carey of Garland.
Police Chief Bob Hundley Jr. says two other men were in the house at some point Wednesday night. Hundley says one of those has been interviewed and the other is arrested on unrelated charges.
