In Missouri, a woman has been charged with killing two men she believed were carjackers who took her SUV.
Damesha Coleman, 35, was charged on Thursday with two counts of murder, one count of assault, and three counts of armed criminal action for killing Joseph Farrar, 49, and Darius Jackson, 19.
Around 10:30 pm, police found both men dead at the gas station located at North Broadway and Riverview with gunshot wounds to the torsos. Jackson was found next to the car, while Farrar was found by the gas pump.
During the shooting rampage, a third unidentified victim was shot in the head. As of right now, his condition is unknown.
The St. Louis Dispatch reported that it wasn’t clear whether any or all of the three men shot were involved in the robbery of the shooter’s vehicle.
At the gas station, surveillance footage shows Coleman approaching a Hyundai Tucson with a man who was also armed. The police say Coleman opened the car door to the vehicle before shooting.
According to Coleman, she went to the gas station to retrieve her stolen vehicle.
Michelle Jackson, Farrar’s youngest sister, was distraught upon learning of her brother’s death and claimed he was an innocent bystander killed by a stray bullet. Jackson said Farrar was at the gas station to purchase medicine for his 11-year-old son who was sick.
Kia and Hyundai cars have been stolen more frequently this year due to a TikTok trend that showed how easily they can be stolen. A TikTok video shows how a USB cable can be used to hot-wire the cars, and the carmakers are being sued by consumers as a result.
