Man fatally shot roommate over argument about pork chop

Holly Hill police said a man shot and killed his roommate after the two argued over a pork chop.

Thomas Hahn, 55, is charged with second-degree murder. Officials said Hahn was sitting in a chair at the home on May Avenue just before 10:30 pm on Tuesday when police arrived.

He told officers that he shot Robert Eugene Gray Jr., 35, in self-defence, but police said the evidence suggests otherwise.
