Miller told emergency dispatchers that one of his roommates was naked in his daughter’s bedroom, which led to him shooting at both roommates through a closed bedroom door, according to The News-Press.

Police arrived at the home in Cape Coral and attempted to get to the bottom of the tense situation.

Officers said they found shell casings and bullet holes in the victims’ bedroom door.

The two roommates told police they rented a bedroom from Miller and they were drinking heavily earlier in the evening, The News-Press reported.

Police said one roommate claimed that after drinking, he got up to use the restroom but then mistakenly went into the teenager’s room. The teen lives in the house and was asleep in bed at the time, according to officers.

The victim lay in bed with the teenager and fell asleep, police said.


Once the girl realized a naked man was sleeping next to her, she got up and told her father, officials said.

Meanwhile, the victim’s spouse then woke up the victim and shouted that the room he was asleep in wasn’t theirs.

The couple returned to their bedroom, which is when Miller approached and started pounding on the door shouting, “I’ll kill you," according to cops.
