A couple being pegged as a ‘wannabe Bonnie and Clyde’ was charged with slaying a Dallas man after bragging about it in a Facebook video.
The video features the couple ranting about shooting someone, who turned out to be 19-year-old Drekeiston Alex.
The Bonnie and Clyde wannabes are 27-year-old Ashley Ann Coleman and 17-year-old Hakeem Leprince Griffin-White. They were both charged Sunday with murder. Authorities say they fatally shot Alex. Police say the judge set bail for $500,000 each.
The victim, Drekeiston Alex, was walking through a parking lot on Thursday at about 2:40 PM. When he to the middle of the street, a gunman shot at him. Alex was rushed to Baylor University Medical Center. Dallas Morning News reported that he died after arriving at the hospital.
Surveillance clips were released by police showing the gunman, who was dressed in all black. The public was also shown footage of a 2007 red PT Cruiser. According to Coleman’s arrest affidavit, it belonged to the 27-year-old murderer.
Police eventually located the vehicle Friday through witnesses who provided them with locations.
A video posted to Facebook showed on of them holding a gun while boasting about shooting someone, the affidavit states.
Coleman and Griffin-White denied having any involvement in the killing of Alex, with Coleman writing in a separate Facebook post that she’s “far from a murderer.”
She then posted a photo of the couple to Instagram, with her holding a rifle while Griffin-White stood behind her holding a gun.
“I’m his Bonnie he my Clyde,” the post reads.
Coleman’s previous record includes pleading guilty to misdemeanor and assault charges in Dallas County, the newspaper reported.
