Two suspects charged with the fatal shooting of a teenage boy in a South Carolina bowling alley asked the court to follow them on social media.
Dennis Gibbs, 19, and Albert Taylor, 22, faced a courtroom camera and began soliciting online followers before being led out in handcuffs on Thursday.
‘What’s up, y’all? Will you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Soundcloud…’ Gibbs said.
‘Follow me on Instagram, Snapchat,’ Taylor chimed in.
The attention-seeking duo face murder, assault and weapon possession charges for allegedly shooting Kejuan Brown, 17, to death at Tri-City Lanes bowling alley in Easley, South Carolina Wednesday night, police said.
Jamari Fair, 18, and an unnamed 15-year-old suspect face the same charges for their alleged roles in the killing.
Police said the four suspects were apprehended shortly after the shooting after a witness gave investigators a description of their car.
The alleged killers apparently knew the victim and had argued with him on social media before meeting up at the bowling alley to fight, Easley police chief Tim Tollison told WYFF4.
‘I just wish justice will done, because you would hate to see somebody do this, and then smile at you just like they haven’t did a thing,’ said the victim’s grandfather after being shown a video of the suspects’ comments in court by reporters from WYFF4.
