Fugitive Jared Stone posts to Facebook claiming self defense for his Murder charge

Fugitive Jared Stone apparently went online Tuesday evening claiming self-defense "I will defend myself not run I didnt want to fight over childish reasons this isnt my fault I defended myself" In reference to a $2,000,000 warrant for his arrest on Murder Charges stemming from an incident where police say he shot Baptiste Whiteyes in the head outside a casino in Sioux Falls on Friday, Whiteyes later died at a hospital from his injuries.

Stone also confessed his love for his family and friends saying " I love my fam en the real friends I do have ..... let my babygirl remember the father I was"

This post attracted wide attention in the short time it was online, from love to hate of Jared. The post and account were deactivated around 11:30PM Tuesday evening.
