We’re not quite sure where things went wrong here. Was it Florida, where it seems that most of the crazy crimes you read about in the news are committed? Maybe its the heat or the hurricanes, we’re not sure. Or maybe it’s just that twins stick up for each other, even down to committing crimes for their sibling? We’re not sure, but this story out of Florida has us perplexed.

People.com reports: 

A 40-year-old Florida man is accused of fatally shooting his twin brother’s romantic rival following an altercation on Labor Day, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

On Monday, police arrested Kelcey Riddick of Boynton Beach on a first-degree murder charge. Police believe Riddick fatally shot Derrick Barber, 35, outside a convenience store in Boynton Beach on Sept. 4.

Shortly prior to the deadly shooting, several witnesses allegedly observed Barber and Riddick’s twin, Kunta Kinte Riddick, engaged in a heated argument that turned physical in the store’s parking lot.

According to court papers, detectives recovered surveillance video from the store that helped identify Kelcey Riddick as the alleged gunman.

 Police were able to distinguish Kelcey Riddick from his brother, as the shooting suspect because has a full sleeve of tattoos on his left arm.

They also reviewed Facebook images, and found ones were Kelcey was wearing the same shirt he had on the night of the killing.

A confidential informant told police that the shooter’s twin brother and Barber were feuding over the affections of a woman: Barber’s child’s mother, court records state.

Detectives spoke to the woman, who told them she had been speaking to Kunta Kinte Riddick, but decided to take Barber back about a week before the lethal confrontation.

Kelcey Riddick allegedly fired two shots, and one bullet struck Barber in the chest, according to the documents.

Kelcey Riddick is being held without bond and it was unclear Wednesday if he has retained legal counsel for his impending defense.

He has yet to enter a plea to the single murder count.

Sadly, this is not the first time Kunte Kinte Riddick has has problems with a relationship. Click HERE for the details of the other time Kunta has dealt with a problematic rival.

  1. Ain’t no damn woman is worth killing someone over to win her ❤️ and by the way with the storm gown there do anybody have time for this type of crap.
    Men what you marry now at twenty you wouldn’t want her at forty.
    Your whole level of maturity change.
    Wait until you’re 35 marrying in your twenties ain’t worth it

    • Calm down before something explodes. A man is dead. That’s not funny. Slavery isn’t funny. But a negro who’s parents named him Kunta Kinte with the last name Riddick is fu**in’ hilarious. Learn the art of compartmentalization. You’ll be a much more pleasant person to be around. Go ahead. Unwad those panties.

      It really is true, FL got some insane folks, every time you hear about some craziness, 9 times out of 10, it’s coming from FL. They’re such a mix bag of nuts you can’t contribute it to one thing, maybe it’s the sun rays lol.

  2. There are way too many fish in the sea to be killing someone over Man or Woman.

    Now Kunte Kinte will have the time on his hands to sit in his jail cell and think
    about what he did and how STUPID it was.

    These two took brotherly affection a bit too far!!!!!!!!!!!
