Deputies charged Jeffrey Rewis, 49, with second-degree murder Friday after a forensic analysis of a rifle recovered during a search warrant at Rewis’s home found that it was the gun used to shoot 30-year-old William Lolley.
According to deputies, Rewis and Lolley got into a fight at Rewis’s home on SE 80th Avenue that escalated quickly.
Witnesses told deputies that when Lolley tried to leave the house in a van with several other people, Rewis retrieved an AK-47 type rifle and began shooting at him from his second-floor patio.
Deputies said the witness statements matched forensic evidence like bullet trajectories.
Deputies arrested Rewis, a convicted felon, the day after the shooting on drug and weapons possession charges after serving a search warrant on his house.
Rewis consistently changed his story during interviews, deputies said.
He is currently being held at the Marion County jail with no bond.
