COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Rayshawn Laster pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his mother in the head last December, admitted doing so in a text to a neighbor and then provided updates on Facebook while on the run from police.

On December 30, police received a call from 49-year-old Brenda Laster-Taylor in regards to an argument she was having with her 26-year-old son, a known gang member. Laster had already fled the premises by time the officers arrived, but returned around 7:30 p.m. and shot his mother in the head while she talked on her cell phone.

He immediately admitted to shooting his mother in a text message to a neighbor that read, “i killed brenda.” After failing to carjack a man outside of a bar,  he posted as series of status updates on Facebook using a cell phone.

“To all my solids n my real friends. Forever hustlin. Even after death. Solid 4 life,” one read. At around 9 p.m. an update stated, “I’m sorry for nothing. My journey has come to an end.”

At  10:20 p.m. Laster realized it was almost over as the police dragnet closed in. “They are all over. Everywhere around me so its only a matter of time.” He was correct. Police had been tracking him by pinging the cell phone he was using, and by the next morning he was in police custody.
