WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) A former Florida State football player was involved in a scuffle with his girlfriend hours before he fatally shot one man and injured another, according to an arrest affidavit released Thursday.
Travis Rudolph, 25, was ordered to remain in jail during a first appearance hearing in West Palm Beach on Thursday morning. He's charged with one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.
Deputies detailed the shooting in an affidavit released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Investigators said Rudolph's girlfriend told them she called a male friend following the scuffle Wednesday. The friend and three other men then went to Rudolph's home, where a fight broke out, the affidavit said. A witness told investigators that Rudolph ran after the men and shot at them with a rifle after they got back in their car and began to drive away.
