"Tuscaloosa homicide investigators say the man killed in an altercation with his two roommates earlier today wanted to die, and provoked his roommates to shoot him by attacking them first. Investigators responded to a home on Fosters Ferry Road a little after 8 a.m. Monday, where a 54-year-old man had asked his two roommates to end his life. When they refused, he started attacking them with a wrench, said Captain Loyd Baker with the Tuscaloosa Police Department. One of the roommates, a 58-year-old man who was hooked up to an oxygen tank, shot the 54-year-old with a handgun as the man attacked him with a wrench." (10/03/11)
