An arrest warrant was issued for Paul Neff on Tuesday, February 4th for First Degree Murder. Neff was taken into custody in Winter Park this morning and has been booked into the Orange County Jail.

On November 5th, 2015 at 8:30 p.m., Apopka Police responded to 1050 Villa Lane for a fatal shooting. Paul Neff called 911 after he shot his roommate, Sean Davis.

No one else was present when the shooting occurred. Paul Neff initially claimed he fired in self-defense, but the JHIT investigation found differently.

Over the course of the investigation detectives learned there was a lag time from when the fatal shot was fired to when Neff called 911. They also found discrepancies in the crime scene that did not support a self-defense claim. Neff and Davis were living together and in a relationship at the time of Davis' death.

Detectives traveled throughout the state, making contact with friends and family of Davis during the investigation. And in the two days leading up to Davis' death, Neff made multiple threats to shoot and kill him over text messages.

The Joint Homicide Investigation Team (JHIT) and the Apopka Police Department have a partnership for all Homicide Investigations in Apopka to be conducted by JHIT.
