A Florida man has been charged with second-degree murder after shooting his drunken roommate in an argument over how to cook pork chops, said the Orlando Sentinel, citing Holly Hill, Fla., police.

The 55-year-old man allegedly shot and killed one of his three roommates on Tuesday night, according to the article, after the roommate arrived home drunk, police said. When police arrived at their home, they found the 35-year-old victim dead on the floor with the alleged shooter sitting nearby.

The two had argued about their meal and police said the alleged murderer took a .22-caliber Ruger rifle and fired at least three shots, with two shots striking the roommate and killing him immediately. 

"This appears to be a senseless act of violence stemming from a minor domestic dispute between roommates," said police Chief Mark Barker in the article. "There is no clear answer at this hour as to why [he] acted with such extreme violence."
