DAILYKENN.com -- Two black males were arrested for the murder of Ronald “Ronnie” Fassina, 67, at the victim's Fultondale, Ala. home.
According to al.com:
Fassina was shot inside his Chapel Hills home on Wednesday, Feb. 10. He died four days later at UAB Hospital. David was also shot and seriously wounded during the incident. He had already left the scene by private vehicle when police arrived at the home, and later showed up at UAB Hospital.
Now released from the hospital, David was booked into the Jefferson County Jail today at 2:24 p.m.
The shooting happened about 11 p.m. when the victim's son, 33-year-old Jeremy Fassina, brought David and Dixon to his father's home. Authorities said the younger Fassina had been in a relationship with David for several weeks prior to the shooting.
In an interview with AL.com, the younger Fassina said said he and David actually met on the dating app Grindr and they had only seen each other twice. Friends said they had been at a casino the previous night, where Jeremy Fassina had been flashing money.
Fultondale police Chief D.P. Smith has previously said the shooting wasn't a random act. "Everybody there knew each other,'' he said. "It's not like they rode by and did this.
The chief said investigators are still trying to determine what led to the dispute over money that night, and the subsequent shooting.
