BATON ROUGE- Sheriff's deputies escorted a 16-year-old accused triple murderer into the adult prison Wednesday afternoon.

Inside, Nakeydran Williams will await trial for a shooting in Baker nearly three weeks ago where four other teenagers were shot.  Three died in the incident and a fourth survived.

For the shooting, Williams is being tried as an adult for three counts of murder and one count attempted murder, a sheriff's office spokesperson said. 

"This is a senseless tragedy," said Sheriff Sid Gautreaux. "Three young lives lost, and countless others ruined. If convicted, this young man could spend his life behind bars."

The tragedy sparked a community-wide discussion on violence.
