Adams is facing these charges

  • Second Degree Murder
  • Illegal Use of a Weapon

The affidavit states that Adams looked for and shot Neville Allen in the parking lot of the Louisiana Culinary Institute located at 10550 Airline Hwy.

EBRSO says, “the victim was observed raising his hands into the air in a defensive posture by backing away from the Accused. Unprovoked, the Accused fire one round, striking the victim in his neck, chest, and hand.”

Adams fled the scene in a 4-door Lexus after the shooting.

According to affidavit, “detectives obtained information the Victim was recently dating a young woman who had a jealous boyfriend, whom detectives identified as Trebien D. Adams.”

Prior to the fatal shooting, EBRSO states that Neville Allen was receiving threats.

Trebien Adams was arrested on Wednesday, February 5.

Adams told investigators 22-year-old Jarquin Handy gave him the gun he used to shoot Allen.

Handy is facing these charges:

  • Principal to Second Degree Murder
  • Illegal Use of a Weapon

Malik Brady says he went to school with both Allen and Adams. Brady says he, Adams and the victim were all friends.

“Never in a million years did I think someone would want to [kill Allen], Brady said. “The fact that it happened with Trebien [is] going to sit with me forever. He acted off of emotion, didn’t think it through, and now he has to pay for it.”

He says the allegations about Adams are alarming.

“If it was anybody else that we didn’t know [that killed Allen} I’d still be hurt, mourning the loss of Neville, but it would be different than knowing it was somebody we grew up with,” Brady said. [Allen is] somebody we seen every day, played basketball with, football with, that we were friends with– that’s what makes it hurt.
