HOLLY HILL, Fla. – A 37-year-old man was shot and killed Thursday at a Holly Hill business in an apparent dispute over merchandise, according to police.
Officers with the Holly Hill Police Department responded to 433 Walker Street at 1:35 p.m. and found Allen Philip Fike, of Ormond Beach, dead inside unit 1G. The name of the business has not been released.
Holly Hill police said it appears Fike went to the business to confront the owner in an ongoing dispute over merchandise. No other details about the shooting have been released.
In a 911 call placed shortly after the shooting, the business owner told dispatchers Fike came to the shop to kill him after threatening him the night before.
“He threatened me several times. He came here last night threatening to kill me and today he walked in here and threatened to kill me,” the business owner said in the call.
The owner said he asked Fike why he was threatening to kill him, to which he said Fike responded “I don’t make threats.”
“And then he came at me and I freaking shot him,” the business owner told dispatchers.
Police said Thursday that they detained one person at the scene, but no charges have been filed in the fatal shooting.
Police said investigators will work with the state attorney’s office “to complete a thorough investigation of the facts surrounding this case.”
