Shreveport, LA – A woman who was streaming live on Facebook when she was shot has died, according to the police (video below.)
Rannita Williams, a mother of three children, was on Facebook when it is alleged Johnathan Robinson shot her after shooting at police, according to KTBS-TV.
After Robinson shot her, Williams was rushed to the hospital. A hospital spokesman told The Shreveport Times that Williams, 27, was dead when she arrived at the hospital.
Robinson later surrendered to police.
Robinson was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of second-degree murder and a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
Robinson, 36, was moved to another facility after he broke an overhead shower sprinkler and ripped a phone off the wall at the Shreveport City Jail, according to KALB-TV.
KTBS reported that Robinson broke a pipe and flooded his cell at the jail.
The shooting happened at about 11 a.m. The Facebook Live video was circulated among TV stations in Shreveport. In the video, Robinson was animated and agitated.
“I don’t give a f**k about no police, you hear,” Robinson said on the video.
He then stood behind Williams while she was on Facebook Live and talked about making her famous.
“Wanna be famous? I’m gonna make you famous,” he said.
The Shreveport Times reported that Robinson barricaded himself inside the house for nearly 80 minutes. On the video, gunshots could be heard.
Police said that they believed that Robinson was using a rifle.
The Shreveport Times stated that police fired back and an officer was shot in the wrist. That wounded officer was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police said about 40 law enforcement and emergency units responded to the scene, according to The Shreveport Times.
KTBS reported that Robinson was arrested on domestic violence charges involving another woman in 2015. He ran that woman off the road in 2015 and dragged her into a house and beat her, according to arrest reports.
