ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A 20-year-old man was arrested after he shot and killed his stepfather, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
The shooting happened Monday at about 7:45 p.m. at the Wisper Palms apartment complex on the 2200 block of Saw Palmetto Lane, the Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies said they found the suspected gunman, Te'Quann Skeete, and his stepfather, Marcus Rosa, 36, inside the residence.
Investigators said Skeete became irritated when the food he was cooking started to burn and his mother asked him to turn on a fan to clear out smoke.
Deputies said Skeete went upstairs and slapped Rosa on the face before pulling out a gun.
They said Rosa managed to take the gun away from Skeete, but Skeete pulled out a second gun and shot Rosa at least five times.
Deputies said Skeete's mother told them he had not been acting like himself since he returned from a trip to the Virgin Islands last month.
Officials said Rosa was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Skeete was arrested on a charge of first-degree murder.
