According to the police, Jason and his brother were renovating a house on Shihmen Ct in Antioch when he got fed up with being berated by his brother for his work renovating a shower. He went outside to calm down, but after walking around for a period of time, he grabbed his .357 revolver from the company box truck and went back inside to his brother began berating him again, and Jason fired two shots at close range. At least one of the two shots struck the victim in the upper abdomen. There was a brief scuffle over control of the gun, and two more shots were fired. Once Jason regained control of the gun, he went back outside and put the gun back in the truck. A third person, Rhonda Ellis, was working with the Mcintire Brothers, told police she didn’t witness the altercation but did find the victim lying on the floor moaning afterward, and Brian told her it was Jason who shot him.
