Prosecutors said Kevin Dixon, 18, got into an argument with his girlfriend, India Mackey, around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday inside a van in his driveway on Shirley Avenue.

“You think I’m playing, huh? Gonna hit you with these hollow tip 45′s, gonna eat your (expletive) up,” Dixon can be heard saying in the video.

Dixon shot and killed Mackey shortly after she finished recording, officials said.

He drove the van into Eastpointe with Mackey’s body still inside, according to authorities. He was pulled over for driving erratically, police said.

Dixon is charged with first-degree murder, carrying a concealed weapon and a felony firearm violation. He faces up to life in prison if convicted on the murder charge, five years in prison for the concealed weapon charge and two years in prison for the felony firearm violation, officials said.
