The 19-year-old man who lead police on a wild manhunt through Tennesee and Arkansas after fatally shooting two people was arrested after a brief standoff with police Wednesday night.
The suspect has been identified as Ezekiel Kelly was taken into custody after wrecking the grey Toyota SUV he was driving, according to the DeSoto County Sheriff’s office.
Police say that he shot two people and livestreamed his bloody work.
He allegedly shot one person at a BP gas station on South Parkway and a woman on Norris Road near I-240, according to Fox 13.
A video of the shooting posted online apparently shows Kelly entering an AutoZone where a man in a grey polo shirt stands beside the counter. The gunman raises his weapon and fires repeatedly at the man.
As he leaves he’s heard saying, ‘This sh*t for real.’

In another video that show Kelly’s short dreadlocks, he’s driving down the road and says, ‘It’s getting real wild here’ and then the sound of automatic gunfire can be heard.
Police had thought that he crossed into Arkansas sometime after 7 p.m, but he was cornered at the intersection of Ivan and Hodge roads in DeSoto County, Tennesee.
Memphis Police previously said that he was driving an Infiniti with red dealer tag and a rear window busted out.

Police had considered him armed and dangerous and warned city residents to stay indoors.
Kelly, whose Facebook page Zeke Huncho shows him flashing guns and money in most photos, posted an eerie message in mid-August, saying ‘I’m sorry momma I know you hate how I live…I know you pray every night I swear wont GO witout a fight.’
The shooting spree comes the same week that the body of kidnapped billionaire heiress Eliza Fletcher, 34, was found in Memphis.
Police have charged Cleotha Henderson, an ex-con who served 20 years for a previous abduction, with aggravated kidnapping, tampering with evidence and murder.
