A Florida man killed his ex-wife and his stepson in a rage over the weekend for leaving lights on inside the house, law enforcement officials said.

The incident took place inside a home in Deland, about 35 miles north of Orlando.

Sheriff’s office Chief Deputy Brian Henderson said a person, who identified himself as Michael Williams, dialed 911 just before 8 pm Sunday and said he had shot two people inside the home he shared with his ex-wife.

Deputies found Williams sitting in a vehicle parked in the driveway where he surrendered and was taken into custody without incident, Henderson said.
