Palm Bay, Florida - It began with an argument over a soft drink.

And now for the third time in less than three weeks, Palm Bay detectives are investigating a homicide involving a claim of self-defense.

“They were arguing over a Coke,” said Yvonne Martinez, spokeswoman for the Palm Bay Police Department. “One brother had drunk it and the other was upset.”

Martinez said detectives are turning over the case to the state attorney's office for review.

The deadly shooting took place about 1 p.m. Friday afternoon at the 1090 Castile Road home of Joseph Giampetro, 31, and 23-year-old Anthony Giampetro. Police received a 9-1-1 call from Anthony Giampetro saying he had shot his brother Joseph three times with a revolver, officials said.

Okay, I can sort of see a warning shot through the shoulder for touching the soft drink but three shots from a revolver? That's just pure spite.
