    CASSELBERRY, Fla. - "The next one's going in you!"

    That is what a Casselberry man told his roommate after shooting at him following an altercation over cat hair, according to a police report obtained by Channel 9 reporter Jeff Levkulich

    The incident occurred April 26 at the home on Ranch Trail in Casselberry.

    Craig Allen Tull told the responding officer his roommate, Christopher D. Schaffner, did not clean up after his cat when it left hair all over the couch. He said he ordered Schaffner to leave the house, but he refused, at which point he shoved Schaffner. 

    Schaffer told police he was sitting at his computer in the living room when Tull got his gun from his bedroom and pointed it at him, firing a round in his direction but not hitting him. Schaffer also told the officer Tull grabbed his car keys from his belt before jabbing the gun into his rib cage, causing minor bruising.

    Crime scene investigators found bullet holes in a wood cabinet that were consistent with the silver Taurus Judge revolver in the home.

    Police arrested Tull, but had to use four sets of handcuffs because he was unable to put his hands behind his back. He faces multiple charges, included aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.

    Schaffner told the officer he and Tull have been roommates for two years since Schaffner's girlfriend died.
