LARGO — Man, this is one of the saddest holiday stories ever. Damarcus Coley, 14, remains locked up in a juvenile detention center after he murdered his big sister, 23-year-old Abrielle Baldwin, over some damn Christmas gifts (or lack thereof). The sororicide transpired around 1:45 p.m. on December 24, 2023 in Largo, Florida. According to police reports, the family had gathered at grandma’s house on Christmas Eve to exchange presents. Damarcus and his brother, 15-year-old Darcus Coley, had contretemps over who received better gifts. Abrielle — a single mom of two boys — showed up and intervened, telling Damarcus to calm the f*ck down. That’s when the trigger-happy Grinch pulled out a gun and opened fire — striking Abrielle in the chest as she held her infant son. After yelling “you shot my mothaf*ckin’ sister,” Darcus pulled out his gun and opened fire — striking Damarcus in the stomach. Darcus took off running. Abrielle and Damarcus were transported to the hospital.

The latter underwent emergency surgery and survived.

The former died.

“Through their investigation, detectives learned Damarcus, 15-year-old Darcus Coley, and Abrielle, who are all siblings, went Christmas shopping with their mother and Abrielle’s 11-month-old and six-year-old sons,” the police report stated. “They then went to their grandmother’s home where Damarcus, Darcus, and Abrielle were involved in a verbal altercation over Christmas gifts. After Abrielle told Damarcus to stop arguing because it was Christmas, Damarcus told Abrielle he was going to shoot her and the 11-month-old she was holding in a baby carrier. Damarcus shot Abrielle in the chest while Abrielle was holding the child in the carrier. Shortly thereafter, Darcus exited the residence with another firearm and shot Damarcus because Damarcus shot Abrielle. Darcus then fled the scene, tossing his firearm into a nearby yard. Detectives have been unable to locate the firearm used by Darcus.”

After receiving medical treatment, Damarcus was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, child abuse, and firearm possession. It wasn’t the first time he was arrested. Investigators said Damarcus has a rap sheet comparable to Charles Manson’s — going all the way back to when he was 12 years old. It includes battery on a police officer, grand theft auto, and much more.

After fleeing the scene, Darcus contacted his mother and said he planned to kill himself. He was later taken to a mental health facility where he was charged with attempted first-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence for tossing his gun.

Abrielle worked full-time at an assisted living facility while moonlighting as a cosmetologist.

  1. Here’s my thing. If both of these kids have such a long criminal record at their young age… why are they even getting to celebrate Christmas in the first place? I’ve failed classes in grade school and didn’t get anything for Christmas. I had to show improvement before anything./

    Now that I think about it, BMTs will blame everyone but themselves and their kids for their bad behavior.

  2. If this incident does not display the critical need for black leaders to come, I don’t know is. We are killing each other faster than any white man. Black people have some very serious issues. This is much deeper than what most people will admit. 🤔🤔🤔

  3. Hopefully mom had life insurance on her 3 kids. I KNOW she is relieved those 2 miscreants are out of her hair! 🥴 They’re the State’s problem now.

  4. A 14 and 15 year old with guns, both already seasoned criminals. Neither one of them deserved any fk’n presents. Just a messed up family all around…

  5. She worked two jobs and a good mother, and this loser killed her over what he felt entitled to. Our youth have no respect for themselves or others.

  6. THIS STORY IS CRAZY. Lately, the truth has been crazier than fiction😢

  7. How the hell did both boys have their own gun? Where is the mother in this situation? Just heartbreaking. Sending you much love 💞

  8. The mother didn’t want those boys. She knew it was a matter of time before the streets or the system took their lives. She didn’t plan on losing her daughter in the process. The mother probably gave up on those boys when they were 10-11 years old. 14 & 15 with firearms. I heard in the police statement. The boys were known to have firearms. So the mother knew! She wanted them gone! She won’t admit but she’s glad, just didn’t want to lose her daughter.

  9. Wow, this is crazy as hell. I can’t wrap my head around the foolishness of this. You shot your sister while she held her infant child.😢😢 All over some gifts. 14 years old you throw your life away for what. These kids and guns SMH 😭😭

  10. The mother should’ve gave them presents equally or none at all. The mother seem to did that on purpose causing division amongst the siblings very demonic and narcissistic.

  11. What the hell are fourteen and fifteen year old kids doing with guns?

  12. Lol, all for a fake holiday and superficial items…now this is Plantation stuff… and no race is exempt

  13. you could see by their first names they were already doomed…
    why do black people kill back people all the time, why you hate eachother so much, and whats up with the fucken anger all the time?

  14. Stolen semi-automatic weapons, stolen presents. What in the world was this family into? Was grandma involved in this theft ring, were the parents, were the teenagers? What a tragic story for all involved. These kids didn’t have a chance at a normal life. You do what you are taught.

  15. The “ME” generation. At that age I was worried about making sure I saved my babysitting money all year to get evey single family member a meaningful gift. And I’m sure many people reading this did the the same. Even at age 14, 15 they should have been working to provide gifts for the nephews and sister, not worried about how much they were going to receive. I’ll say it again…. gen Z… the ME generation.



  18. How horrible! What happened to this generation? They are living without God in their lives. Families wake up! Pray for your kids, live good lives in front of them. Give the rest of your lives to Jesus!

  19. Their mother is to blame if she really did that. Why treat one child better than the other? That’s exactly how you raise hell on earth. Parents, treat your children equally. No favorites. Don’t do it or you could pay with your unworthy life. Teach your children to get along. They’re not in a freaking jungle and trying to figure it out. That woman just ruined her family. And yes, I think she’s culpable if she really made one son feel so jealous of the other.

  20. You are man enough to walk around with a gun. You should be man enough to be able to get you a job to get what you felt like you should have for Christmas.🙏🏽😢

  21. And this is why Christmas should be banned like it used to be before 1930 in America it’s time to stop telling these lies these fairy tales about Santa Claus and Jesus on the 25th of December when at one point the month of December didn’t even exist because there were only 10 months in the year

  22. No this is what is messed up. The 15 year old brother had every right to defend his family against the 14 year old brother who murdered his sister. Who knows who was next.
