    Arizona man who apparently tweeted that he'd murder his roommate is arrested in death of roommate


    A man in Arizona who apparently tweeted that he was close to “viciously” murdering his roommates is now facing murder charges – in the death of one of his roommates.

    A fight between Zachary Penton, 21, and Daniel Garofalo, 41, led to a shooting Sunday night at the home in Gilbert.

    Police said Penton called 9-1-1 to report that he had killed Garofalo. He faced second-degree murder charges.

    “I need to move out of my place before I viciously murder my roommates,” read a post Saturday morning on a Twitter account under the name Zac_Penton.
