Jacksonville police make an arrest in a Friday shooting in Mandarin that all started with a night out at the bar…
40-year-old Peter Klemm is charged with murder for allegedly shooting his friend, 34-year-old John James, in the throat. Lt. Rob Schoonover with JSO says the two live in the same apartment complex off San Jose and got in an altercation after having drinks at a local bar.
After they returned to their apartments Klemm got a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun and went looking for James despite his brother trying to stop him. After confronting James and chasing him around the parking lot Klemm finally shot James on his back porch. Klemm’s brother held him down until police arrived.
Lt. Schoonover says he later admitted to shooting James though he could not remember why the two of them were arguing or about what.
