According to police officials in Gilbert, they were informed about gun-shot around 11:15 am. Zachary Penton, 21, admitted that he shot his roommate Daniel Garofalo, 41, after some sort of argument.
According to a report published in the Arizona Republic, Penton moved in with Garofalo two months back. It is still unclear how the two came in touch. Penton, who shot his roommate in head, said that Garofalo was acting bizarre from past few days.
The KTVK-TV reported that Garofalo would talk about “alternative universes” and “black holes” which scared Penton.
But the weirdest part is Zachary Penton showed some kind of obsession with guns and murder on social media platform.
Holy shit buying a gun is so easy
