North Texas Police Investigating Quadruple Homicide

Posted: Updated:

(KXAS) -- Police in Paris, Texas are investigating a quadruple homicide that was discovered after someone called 911 at about 11:23 p.m. Wednesday.

The Paris Police Department said they received a call from a female reporting someone was bleeding inside a residence at 435 NE 6th Street.

When Paris fire, police, and EMS arrived, they found four individuals deceased in the residence.

All four bodies were found in a front room with apparent gunshot wounds. Autopsies have been ordered for all the victims.

Police identified the victims as 18-year-old Romello Dewain Steward, 21-year-old Devante Larry Atkins, and 24-year-old Brijonne Rashad Woods, all from Paris. Additionally, 32-year-old Billy Charles Carey, of Garland, was identified as a victim.

Investigators said there were two other men in the house at some point during the evening. Investigators interviewed one of the men, while the second was arrested on unrelated charges.

Police investigators continued to process the complex crime scene until about 8:05 a.m. Thursday. From the preliminary investigation, police have ruled out a murder-suicide action.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the Paris Police Department at 903-784-6688 or Lamar County CrimeStoppers at 903-785-TIPS.
