A man accused of killing a woman moments after broadcasting on Facebook Live is in a Northwest Louisiana jail charged with murder. 

Police say Jonathan Robinson shot and killed Rannita Williams on Thursday. The minutes leading up to the shooting in the Shreveport-area were captured on Facebook Live. The video showed what appeared to be Robinson forcing Williams to do the Facebook Live to offer an apology. What the apology was for is unclear. 

Robinson is in the Caddo Correctional Center and his bond is set at $785,000. He is facing seven counts of attempted first-degree murder. He’s also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of simple criminal damage to property.

According to KXAN’s sister station KTAL, in the video — which has since been removed by Facebook — Robinson says, “You really think I’m worried about the police right now?” He goes on to say, “Everybody wanna be famous, let’s be famous today.” 

Towards the end of the video, shots can be heard and Williams can be heard saying, “Stop Jonathan!”
