A Missouri woman allegedly tracked down the man who murdered her teenage brother and fatally shot him to avenge her sibling’s death, according to a report Thursday.
Tityana Coppage, 21, is accused of gunning down Keith Lars, 36, in a Kansas City parking lot on Jan. 13 — three days after her little brother Jason Ugwuh, 16, was shot to death, according to an arrest affidavit cited by KCTV 5.
Coppage allegedly killed Lars because she believed he was involved in the murder of her sibling, according the local station.
Coppage allegedly admitted to shooting Lars but claimed it was in self defense. She also confessed to knowing where he would be before the attack and said she’d followed him, the affidavit states.
During the investigation, cops say they uncovered text messages sent from Coppage to a person she called “Auntie” asking for .45-caliber bullets. She also allegedly sent a text to her late brother after his death saying, “I owe em that body,” the outlet reported.
Days before the shooting, she mourned her brother’s death in an eerie Facebook post about street violence.
“I tried to give you the best so you wouldn’t have to look for fake love in the streets,” she wrote in the Jan. 11 post. “But some how I still failed you.”
Coppage lost a second younger brother and cousin, Jayden Ugwuh, 9, and Montell Ross, 8, four years ago when someone fired a bullet inside their home.
Police haven’t said whether Lars was an actual suspect in Ugwuh’s homicide. Coppage’s attorney could not be reached for comment Thursday, according to the outlet.
