This week, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office in Florida announced the arrest of 27-year-old Richard Scott Holovak in connection to the case.
On Nov. 23, deputies responded to a home in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, and found a 34-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
The victim was taken to the hospital, where he died. The name of the victim has not been released.
