ARLINGTON, Texas – Police said an online feud led to a public fist fight and then murder in Arlington over the weekend.
Though they were Facebook friends, witnesses told police that 19-year-old Alysha Tann and 18-year-old Nikki Bogan’s friendship had turned ugly. They were “beefing” on Facebook.
Then on Sunday night the two young women got into a fist fight in the parking lot of the Heather Glen Townhomes in Arlington.
An arrest warrant affidavit states Bogan lost the fight and then told her 20-year-old boyfriend, Darius Howard, to shoot Tann.
A witness saw him shoot a handgun six or seven times in the direction of Tann and a crowd of people in the parking lot, according to the affidavit.
Another person who was shot in the leg then drove Tann to the hospital where she died.
Tann’s Facebook page is now filled with R.I.P. posts.
Her accused killers are in the Arlington jail.
Howard is charged with murder and aggravated assault and Bogan is charged with conspiracy to commit murder
