HOLLY HILL, Fla. -

Police in central Florida say a man fatally shot his roommate during an argument over how to prepare pork chops.

Holly Hill Police Chief Mark Barker told the Daytona Beach News-Journal the shooting happened about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Barker says another roommate called 911 and 55-year-old Thomas Matthew Hahn confessed to responding officers.

Barker says the roommate was shot twice in the head. His name has not been released.

Hahn told officers that his roommate had come home drunk and the two began arguing about dinner. He says they've argued in the past, with the arguments often becoming physical.

Hahn was charged with second-degree murder and is being held without bond at the jail.
