Man Killed Over Facebook Comment
Via DailyMail reports:
An Oklahoma man has been charged with first-degree murder after allegedly killing a man who commented on a picture his girlfriend posted of herself on Facebook.
Police say Antwion Courtez Martin, 20, went to the apartment of Edmond James Tyree, 48, on July 17 and shot him dead. He also allegedly shot and wounded Tyree’s visiting friend Michael Joe Hale.
Five days before his death, Tyree had written ‘damm’ [sic] on a picture Sharda Perkins, 21, had posted of herself clad in a skimpy swimsuit on her Facebook page, presumably intended as a compliment.
On July 17, Tyree was shot dead in his apartment by a gunman and Hale, a disabled Iraq war veteran, was shot and injured. According to NewsOK, Hale said the shooter was accompanied by one or two accomplices, one of whom urged him on, saying, “What’s taking so long? Hurry up and pop a cap in his azz.”
When he looked at Tyree’s Facebook page, he noticed that Perkins was one of only a few friends Tyree had on Facebook. When he clicked on Perkins’ profile, he saw pictures of her with Martin and recognized him as the shooter.
‘It was pure dumb luck that he had his picture on her Facebook page,’ Hale told NewOK.
Police are still looking for the accomplices in the July 17 shooting.
Is it really that serious?? Someone was murdered in cold blood because they left a comment on some trashbucket’s Facebook page and her thug boo felt disrespect. Are you serious??
