A Texas man was arrested after his girlfriend allegedly told him to “smoke” a girl he used to “talk to,” according to reports.

Officers with the Dallas Police Department responded to a shooting on South Malcolm X Boulevard at about 1 a.m. on May 20.

Investigators learned Keerstin Cooper was shot after getting into an argument with Breaira Martin, who became upset because Cooper used to “talk to” her boyfriend Gabriel Leuyas.

Martin, police said, called Leuyas over during the fight and reportedly told him to “smoke” Cooper.

Leuyas then grabbed a semi-automatic handgun tucked in his waistband and shot Cooper two times through the windshield.

After Cooper was shot, another woman quickly entered the vehicle and drove her to the hospital, where Cooper later died, police said.

Police also said surveillance video captured in the area shows the incident, and with the use of gang records, social media and body cam footage, detectives were able to identify the suspects as Leuyas and Martin.

Both suspects were charged with murder, while Leuyas also faces a single charge of unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Martin was also charged with resisting arrest.
