"Stop, Johnathan," Williams said. "Stop, Johnathan." While she is streaming to Facebook Live, her 36-year-old boyfriend Johnathan Robinson can be heard in the background swearing and saying he doesn't "give a f*ck about police". Robinson can be seen pacing in the background of the footage.
"You wanna be famous? I’m gonna make you famous," Robinson said. "Everybody wanna be famous, let’s be famous today." Moments later gunshots can be heard and the silhouette of a man firing a rifle steps into the frame as Williams collapses and drops the phone. "Now, b—h. Game over," Robinson said while standing over the camera. "Game over."
