A Florida man shot and killed his roommate Sunday night after believing his roommate would do the same to him; the shooter then posted about it on social media, according to a report by WFLA.
Ryan Jacob Avedisian, 38, of Largo, was arrested and taken to Pinellas County Jail, and faces a felony charge of murder in the first degree, according to Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Avedisian shot his roommate in their shared kitchen with a handgun Sunday night in a Largo residence on 6th Avenue SE, about five miles south of Clearwater, WFLA reported.
Avedisian then took to social media and posted the message. "Threat neutralized. 911 en route."
He called 911 and explained to authorities that he heard his roommate saying he was going to kill him, and that his roommate tried to poison his food several times. Avedisian told authorities he stayed up all night so he could shoot and kill his roommate, WFLA reported.
