White Man Charged With Fatally Shooting Black Woman in an Alley Says He Did it to “Teach Her A Lesson”

An Oklahoma man who fatally shot a Black woman in an alleyway, told police that he was glad that he’d done it and he did it to “teach her a lesson.”

On December 2, 30-year-old Shane Dale Perosi was arrested by Enid police officers in connection with the death of 27-year-old Martika Ferguson. He has been charged with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, and destruction of evidence.

Police found Ferguson’s body in an alleyway on November 29 after residents in the neighborhood had spotted her lying on the ground. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police found evidence in Perosi’s home that tied him to the shooting, including the shotgun he allegedly used to kill Ferguson. He later confessed to the shooting.

“During an interview with Perosi, he confessed he shot and killed Ferguson,” police officials said in a news release. “Perosi said he’d done so to teach her a lesson.”

The statement added that while police were booking Perosi into the Garfield County Detention Center, he “again reiterated he had murdered Ferguson and said he was glad he’d done so.”

Police have not yet disclosed whether or not Perosi and Ferguson knew each other. They say the murder investigation is still ongoing and have not yet said what they believe Perosi’s motive was.

Ferguson was the mother of an 8-year-old son and friends and coworkers remembered her as bubbly, sweet and kind.

I understand there’s currently at least 70,000 young Black women and girls missing across the united states. The kid nappers and murders of these missing young Black women and girls are white men and women. Just like in Atlanta. It’s Dam near 2021, and I just want to know , when are Black people going to stand up and fight back!? Relaliate with extreme violence and prejudice! This is WAR!!
