Thomas Hahn, age 55, is charged with second-degree murder. He told officers that he shot Robert Eugene Gray, Jr. in self-defense, but police said the evidence suggests otherwise.

The dispute began when Gray came home drunk. The men then got into an argument over how to prepare pork chops when Hahn went to his bedroom, retrieved a rifle and pumped at least three bullets into Gray, killing him, WFTV reported.

Hahn was sitting in a chair near the dead body when police arrived.

“This appears to be a senseless act of violence stemming from a minor domestic dispute between roommates,” Holly Hill Police Chief Mark Barker told the Sentinel. “There is no clear answer at this hour as to why Hahn acted with such extreme violence.”
