Miami-Dade Man Accused Of Killing Victim For Spraying Roach Sprat Near Him

A 62-year-old man was arrested Monday after authorities said he killed another man in northwest Miami-Dade County for smoking and spraying "roach spray" around him.

Police were called Monday to the 2300 block of Northwest 99th Terrace in reference to a man being shot.

Authorities said the victim was found in the front yard of a home, facedown in a pool of blood. He had been shot in the back, authorities said.

According to the arrest report, officers entered the home to find the suspect, Gregory Jefferson, sitting in a chair with a shotgun nearby.

Jefferson was taken into custody.

Police said he spontaneously told them he had been in a verbal altercation with the victim over the victim spraying bug spray around him.

Jefferson then said he didn't want to continue talking because he didn't want the officers to have to go to court, the arrest report stated.

Jefferson was arrested on a second-degree murder charge.
