An Oklahoma City man accused of killing a man and a woman was upset because he was sold methamphetamine instead of cocaine, court papers show.

Darrell Deshonne Brown, 21, was charged Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court with two counts of first-degree murder in the June 19 deaths of Edward Allen Jr. and Demetra Boyce at a northeast Oklahoma City apartment complex.

Brown, who goes by the name “Puff,” also was charged with pointing a firearm at another person. He is accused of threatening to kill a witness if the witness told police who he was, according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the charges.

Allen, 30, died of a gunshot wound to the chest. Boyce, 25, died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head, Oklahoma City police reported.

Officers found Boyce dead in the parking lot of Wilshire Renaissance Apartments, 701 E Wilshire Blvd. Allen's body was found inside one of the apartment complex units.

According to the affidavit, “Puff” and an associate were upset over being sold “Ice,” a form of methamphetamine, instead of crack cocaine.

“Puff” shot Allen, a “known drug dealer,” and then pointed the gun at one of the witnesses, police reported. He left the apartment and got into a dark colored car when the female victim approached him and he shot her, police said.

Detectives were able to identify Brown with the help of anonymous callers and a witness who identified him as the shooter from a photo lineup.

Brown is being held without bail in the Oklahoma County jail, a jail official said Tuesday. has disabled the comments for this article.
