A 34-year-old man in Tennessee has been arrested for allegedly fatally shooting one of his roommates after arguing over $10 while celebrating a third roommate’s birthday. Perry Hughes was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with second-degree murder for being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun and tampering with evidence, Law&Crime records show.

Memphis Police Department officers responded to a call about a shooting at an apartment building on the 1500 block of Prescott Street around 5:02 am on March 14, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by Law&Crime. When they arrived at the scene, two people who lived at the residence contacted officers and said their other two roommates – Hughes and a man identified in the document as Antonio – had gotten into an argument that involved ended with Hughes allegedly shooting Antonio multiple times.

Officers entered the residence and found Hughes “barricaded” in his bedroom, the affidavit said.

“After a brief pause, officers were able to persuade Perry Hughes out of his room and take him into custody,” police wrote. “Officials then found the victim upside down and covered in trash in a municipal trash can. The trash can was in Perry Hughes’ bedroom.”

Paramedics responded to the home and pronounced Antonio dead at the scene. Perry Hughes killed roommates over $10: cops
