A woman in Rudolph̵7;s home blurted out that the incident was “self-defense” to investigators. But the former Florida football star, an unidentified woman and another declined to speak to the police further and demanded a lawyer to comply with testimony.
Rudolph and the woman who identified herself as his girlfriend had a physical dispute on Tuesday night, according to the affidavit. Hours later, four people arrived at Rudolf’s home in Cadillac and knocked on the door with what the police later described as intended to talk. They had no weapons, one of the group told police.
A battle took place and one of the witnesses reportedly tried to destroy it. Rudolf, who is described as “fighting and confrontation,” enters his home and returns with a rifle and starts shooting while others get into their cars to escape, police said. Rudolph was accused of chasing the car and continuing to shoot.
Neighbors claimed to have witnessed a fight between Rudolph and his girlfriend, and later heard gunshots and found Rudolph walking back into the house holding a rifle, according to reports.
