According to the Paris Police Department, autopsies performed on each victim of an October 9 quadruple homicide have confirmed that the four men died as a result of gunshot wounds.

Police continue to investigate the late night shooting of 18-year-old Romello Dewain Steward, 21-year-old Devante Larry Akins, 24-year-old Brijonne Rashad Woods, and 32-year-old Billy Charles Carey. Investigators have received several tips from various sources, including anonymous tips submitted through Crime Stoppers. Numerous interviews have been conducted with individuals who have come forward with information but no arrests have been made. 

According to police, a female called 911 around 11:23 p.m. to report someone bleeding at a home located at 434 Northeast 6th Street. Upon arrival, officers found four men slain in a front room of the house. Authorities have not confirmed whether the murders were drug-related, gang-related, or if they believed more than one person was responsible.

Two other men were at the residence at some point Wednesday night. Both were interviewed by investigators and one of those men was arrested on unrelated charges. Police have not identified any witnesses to the shooting.

The department continues to ask for the assistance of the public and urges those who have knowledge of the person or persons responsible for these murders to contact Detective Leigh Foreman, the lead investigator on the investigation at 903-737-4163, or to contact Crime Stoppers at 903-785-8411 if they wish to remain anonymous.
