Luis Soto, the 21-year-old man who instigated a melee in Harlem that led to the deaths of two people and injuries to a pair of NYPD officers, portrayed himself as the toughest of gangbangers on the Twitter micro-blogging site, the New York Daily News reports.

"I go 2 da grave b4 I be a b---h n----! Fa'realll," Soto apparently wrote July 23.

Soto had a criminal record that included eight arrests for burglary, the newspaper has reported.
