3 men indicted in fatal shooting Kennesaw apartment

A fatal shooting at a Kennesaw apartment has led to the indictment of three Acworth men who allegedly killed a 19-year-old during an attempted robbery on May 17.

The trio had been charged in relation to the shooting death of 19-year-old Aiden Kane Shaw at the Walden Ridge Apartment Homes situated on Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw.

Jaiden Lajuan Crawford, 20, David Bernard Travis, 18, and Cibias John Vieira, 22, are alleged to have engaged in the robbery and subsequent killing of Shaw on the morning of May 17. 

At around 3 a.m., Acworth police officers responded to reports of possible shots fired and a potential home invasion at an apartment within the complex. 

Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered Shaw deceased. Witnesses identified Vieira and Bernard as the two individuals who discharged firearms, targeting Shaw and another person, Adrianna Rose Adkins, who was also in the apartment.

According to arrest warrants, Travis is accused of shooting Shaw twice, while Vieira’s warrant alleges that he fired 10 gunshots in the direction of Shaw and Adkins. 

The warrants also suggest that the three suspects had intentions of robbing Shaw and Adkins, targeting items such as money, drugs, and other valuables. 

Travis is additionally charged with burglary; his warrant specifies that he forcibly entered the apartment and took an AR-15 assault rifle, a pair of shoes, and a safe containing approximately $300 in cash.

Police took Crawford into custody on May 19, while Travis remained at large until his arrest on June 23. Vieira, initially not identified as a suspect by Acworth police, was apprehended on June 27. 

The indictment lists Crawford, Travis, and Vieira as co-defendants and charges them with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, attempted home invasion, attempted armed robbery, first-degree burglary, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

All three suspects are being held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.
