A Florida man fatally man shot his brother in the chest over a cheeseburger, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Police said 25-year-old Benjamin Middendorf shot his 28-year-old brother, Nicholas Middendorf, following an argument in the home they share with their mother.

The two siblings reportedly got into an argument after the older sibling and their mother came home from a local bar.

The suspect told officers that his brother had been bullying him. According to WESH-TV, that allegedly prompted Benjamin Middendorf to retrieve a gun and shoot his brother in the living room the family shared.

The woman told police that she heard the argument followed by the suspect threatening to shoot the victim, and then a single shot. She then walked into the living room and found Nicholas Middendorf on the floor. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Audio of her phone call to emergency dispatchers captures the mother yelling, “My son just shot my son. How dare you, Benjamin!”

Benjamin Middendorf was charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held without bail.

"Alexandria, Virginia-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O'Grady's two-page order made short work of Nunes' suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability," Politico explained. "The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss."

Grenell also did not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which generally requires people to disclose work in the U.S. on behalf of foreign politicians.
