Reed was in the process of moving back in when and it is said he left two loaded handguns in a shoebox on the floor of the home.  One guy was a 38mm and the one used in the shooting was a 9mm gun.  After the accident Reed attempted to hide one of the the handguns in a box in a wooded area near the home, the gun was registered as stolen.  Reed stated that he was arguing with the mother of his children when she threw him out of the house but let him come back and that is why the guns were left on the floor.

Reed was arraigned in court Tuesday morning and Hamilton County prosecutors were able to secure  a $59,500 cash bond.  Five children were removed from the home, all siblings, and are being held by Hamilton County Job and Family Services.
