A Dallas couple allegedly involved in the fatal shooting of a man were arrested after police say they boasted about it in a Facebook video, PEOPLE confirms.

Hakeem Leprince Griffin-White, 17, and Ashley Ann Coleman, 27, were both charged with murder in the March 5 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Drekeiston Alex.

Coleman is being held at the Dallas County Jail on $500,000 bail. Griffin-White’s bail is set at $200,000. Neither has entered a plea and attorneys for them could not be reached for comment.

Police say the video on Facebook shows the pair “talking about shooting someone and …  handling a firearm and ammunition,” according to an arrest affidavit.

According to Griffin-White’s lawyer Paul Johnson, Coleman posted a photo on social media last week of her and Griffin-White holding an assault rifle and referring to themselves as “Bonnie and Clyde.”

“I’m his Bonnie he my Clyde,” the caption reads, according to the newspaper.

Alex started to walk away when Griffin-White, who was followed by Coleman in a red Chrysler PT Cruiser, allegedly shot him in the middle of the street and fled, the affidavit states.
