SNELLVILLE, GA (CBS ATLANTA) - Georgia detectives are searching for a man wanted for a shooting rampage inside of a Snellville home, and they believe he may be in the New Orleans area.

Gwinnett County Police say 33-year-old Robert Bell is believed to be somewhere in Louisiana because a vehicle he stole less than a half-mile from the location of the Georgia homicide was recently recovered in New Orleans.

Police believe Bell may be changing his appearance in order to evade police.

CBS Atlanta reports that the reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of suspect Robert Bell, has been increased to $5,000.

According to CBS Atlanta, on Sunday, September 15, three people were fatally shot and another person was injured after Bell allegedly went on a rampage inside a Snellville, Georgia home.

Angelina Benton, 34, her 12-year-old son, Joseph McDonald, and 19-year-old family friend Raynard Daniel were killed in the shooting.

Justin Cato, 23, who is Benton's boyfriend, survived the shooting.

Detectives tell CBS Atlanta News that they still do not know Bell's motive.

Police said Benton allowed the suspect and his wife to move into their home on Anderson Livsey Way because they had nowhere to live.

Investigators said they found an assault rifle that they believe was the murder weapon in Bell's SUV.

Anyone with information should contact homicide unit detectives at 770-513-5300.
