‘Bonnie and Clyde’, Hakeem Leprince Griffin-White [Left] and Ashley Ann Coleman from Dallas, Texas are denying they murdered a 19-year-old man on Thursday, although they bragged about their ‘kill’ on social media and surveillance cameras put them on the scene
An incriminating video has emerged of the self-styled ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ from Dallas, Texas apparently confessing to a shooting in a Facebook Live video shortly before their arrest on murder charges.
Hakeem Leprince Griffin-White, 17, and Ashley Ann Coleman, 27, were arrested on Sunday for the shooting death of 19-year-old Drekeiston Alex, last week Thursday.
In a video prior to their arrest – which was initially deleted, but has since re-emerged on World Star Hip Hop – Griffin-White and Coleman are seen apparently admitting to participating in a shooting.
‘I’m gonna let you know who did it,’ Griffin-White says, then later: ‘If I go back to jail, I’m going for life, n***a.’ In other words the ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ couple ‘admit to murder’ on Facebook Live
The filming of the damning black-and-white video it appears, kicked off first in either Griffin-White’s or Coleman’s home, and later her Chrysler.
Griffin-White [above] and Coleman reportedly made a Facebook Live video in which they claimed to have killed someone. Both have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder
It begins with Griffin-White pointing at a half-empty rack of pistol ammunition, claiming that each empty slot represents a bullet he’s fired at someone.
‘This how many people I done shot here brother,’ he says. ‘I got at so many people, this how many bullets I got left. Real talk, brother, real G moves now, brother.’
It’s not clear who he’s addressing, but there are a series of comments at the bottom from skeptical viewers.
The music video for her track ‘Shots Fired (Asian Doll Diss)’ shows her waving around a pistol and pointing it at the head of a young woman
‘Look this how I do things, brother,’ he says, picking up a round and dropping it into the rack upside-down, so that the cartridge is facing down, and actual bullet is pointing up.
‘I put the bullet on they side… you see, I don’t wanna touch them hoes’ , insinuating that he doesn’t want to get his fingerprints on the cartridges that are thrown out of a pistol when shots are fired.
Coleman then complains ‘Baby, I want a go’ from off-camera, before taking the phone and apparently reading through the skeptical comments.
They include ‘Don’t tell or show what ya got, surprise em’ and ‘Real Gs move in silence.’
17-year-old Griffin-White, who had also showed off bullets (left) became annoyed by Facebook Live commenters (right) that seemed not to believe his claims that he’s ‘Badass’ and had shot many people
The victim in the fatal Thursday shooting in Dallas is Drekeiston Alex [Left].The shooter fled in a red Chrysler [right], similar to Coleman’s. To tie it in, in his video, Griffin-White boasted about shooting someone
He sits in the front of the car and the duo go through the list of commenters, systematically calling each one ‘gay’.
Finally, egged on by the nay sayers, he explodes: ‘Didn’t we all leave the scene? Didn’t we all leave the scene? Don’t ya’ll talk s**t.
‘Why don’t you all look at this, how you know it’s real,’ he says, bringing out his cell phone with text messages on it. ‘Look, This is real s**t, brother. I ain’t gonna lie to y’all brother.
‘Look, I hit him up… I said look, I shot at it, look…’
The Teen ‘Clyde’ digs a bigger hole for himself with his net lines as he quotes his text message. He says he told one victim ‘I could’ve killed you easy but I let y’all boys make it’ because a mutual friend had helped him.
Griffin then repeats the man’s reply over and over: ‘He said, “You shot your son when my son was in the car.”‘
Both Hakeem Griffin-White and Ashley Coleman are social media hawks. The teen posted this image [Left], dipicting himself counting money, while Coleman [Right], promoters herself as rapper ‘Mamme Kash’
With a message saying it was ‘All an image’, Coleman on Friday took to Facebook to protest her innocence, saying it was all make believe
After the killing of Alex, Ashley Coleman posted an Instagram pictured of her with Griffin-White holding guns, captioned ‘KASH N KEEM. IM HIS BONNIE HE MY CLYDE.’
By Friday, after their arrest, Coleman, the rapper whose stage name is ‘Mamme Kash’, posted on Facebook: ‘Im Far From A Murderer. I Swear To God Its All An Image.’
The pair it is alleged, are involved in the fatal shooting of Alex at around 2.40pm on Thursday. Drekeiston Alex , it was reported, was walking on the 4800 block of Sunnyvale Street when a man approached him and the pair began to argue.
According to the Dallas News the unidentified man then pulled out a handgun and shot the teenager in the chest. He later died from the injuries in Dallas’s Baylor University Medical Center.
Police released security camera footage of the events leading up to the shooting.
The gunman was driven from the scene by an accomplice in a red Chrysler PT Cruiser, police said.
That car, it turns out belongs to Coleman, witnesses told police. A car similar to a Chrysler is visible in the black-and-white Facebook Live video.
A second witness also reportedly told cops that Griffin-White shot ‘that boy’ dead.
The alleged shooter Griffin-White, posted on his Facebook page that it was illogical for him to kill someone while ‘girl’s son was in the car’. Coleman’s Instagram posts show her with a young son
Coleman raps under the name ‘Mamme Kash’. Pictured is one of her mugshot. She said this was ‘all an image’ and that she’s ‘far from a killer’
Griffin-White also denied that he knew the victim. After his earlier boasts, he questions those linking his Facebook Live video with the dead man. He asks his online audienc what his video ‘gotta do with that boy’
Wannabe gangsta rapper, Ashley Coleman also posted ‘Free me’ early on Monday. She has been arrested on a charge of first-degree murder, as has Griffin-White
Griffin-White proclaimed his innocence online after their arrest, writing ‘wtf [the Facebook Live video] gotta do with that boy thoo me n my gurr dnt even know dat n***a.’
‘Why Would I Kill Somebody While My Gurr Son Inna Car Df #Think,’ he also wrote.
Coleman has been arrested numerous times in Dallas County, and in 2010 pleaded guilty to assault.
Both Coleman and Griffin-White have been charged with first-degree murder. Coleman was being held Tuesday at the Dallas County Jail, with bail set at $500,000. Police said Griffin-White also was being held in lieu of $500,000, but jail records showed his bail at $200,000.
