A Florida man who was arrested for shooting and killing his roommate allegedly did it because he was "annoyed" with him, according to the arrest affidavit.
Jesse Hill, 42, was arrested by Lake County deputies on Friday, July 8, under suspicion of manslaughter.
According to the police report, Hill made two "cryptic" phone calls to 911 on May 4. When deputies responded to the residents, they found Ernie Wilbur dead on the living room floor wrapped in a sheet and covered with pillows. Wilbur and Hill were roommates.
Deputies found a Ruger .22 caliber high-velocity air rifle on the side of the house, according to the report. An autopsy found a pellet-style bullet had punctured Wilburn's lungs and formed a blood clot.
The property manager told deputies that he had scolded Hill for shooting the gun previously inside the home.
