An Arkansas man has pleaded guilty in the killing of a man he had been fighting with on social media, records show.
Travis Lamar Reed, 28, of Blytheville entered the plea Monday on one count of first-degree murder, according to online filings in Mississippi County Circuit Court. He was sentenced to 25 years in the state Department of Correction.
Police say Reed fatally shot 28-year-old Deandre Love of Blytheville on June 10, 2017, at Sunbath Carwash II on South Division and West McHaney in Blytheville.
Love and a friend were washing Love’s car in a wash bay that night when Reed approached and an argument ensued, according to authorities. Love was shot multiple times and found lying next to his car.
Love was transported to Pafford Emergency Medical Service and later flown to Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where he was pronounced dead.
Reed and Love had been arguing on social media accounts, including Facebook, for several weeks, witnesses told police.
