A Man Shoots and Kills Another Man for Complimenting His Girlfriend's Bathing Suit Photo on Facebook
In June, a 21-year-old woman named Sharda Perkins from Oklahoma City posted a photo of herself in a bathing suit on Facebook. It's a one-piece, but one where the sides are cut out, so it's pretty revealing.
And in July, a 48-year-old named Edmond Tyree left a comment on the photo, just saying, "DAMN." He misspelled it d-a-m-m, which is what people do on Facebook. It's not clear how Edmond knew Sharda.
Five days later, Sharda's boyfriend, 20-year-old Antwion Martin, tracked Edmond down, and SHOT AND KILLED HIM . . . all because he left that Facebook comment.
The police were able to piece together what happened, and arrested Martin for first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill.
David Prater is the district attorney for Oklahoma County. He says, quote, "This is a perfect example of some of the ridiculous reasons people kill for."
