On the night of the crime, Rudolph had just gotten into a fight with his girlfriend at his home in West Palm Beach.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the fight escalated when four men confronted Rudolph at his home — Rudolph, not happy with the confrontation, allegedly grabbed a gun and shot at the group as they ran off.
