A Florida man has been charged with second-degree murder after allegedly shooting his drunken roommate in an argument over a pork chop … seriously.

Thomas Hahn, 55, killed one of his three roommates on Tuesday night after the roommate arrived home drunk, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The two had argued about how to cook pork chops and police said the alleged murderer took a .22-caliber Ruger rifle and fired at least three shots.

Two shots struck the roommate, killing him immediately.


When police arrived at their home, they found Hahn’s 35-year-old victim lying dead on the floor with the alleged shooter sitting nearby.

“This appears to be a senseless act of violence stemming from a minor domestic dispute between roommates,” said police Chief Mark Barker in a statement.

“There is no clear answer as to why [he] acted with such extreme violence.”

Never is. No matter how much views differ on what the best pork chop or pork tenderloin recipe might be, just put the guns down, people. Put them down.
