WINTER HAVEN - The Winter Haven man who confessed to shooting three college friends visiting his home, said he did it because a bad feeling about the guys came over him.
On Thursday the State Attorney's Office released hundreds of discovery files on the case against Joshua Davis including pictures, interviews, and even a video.
In April, police say Davis shot Joe Palacios, Christian Rodriguez, and Estaban Zavala. Palacios and Rodriguez died at the scene.
"I got this loud ringing in my head all of a sudden, it was just screaming at me to just go, go, go," Davis said to detectives. "I don't even remember, it seemed like I got down the hall in two steps, I ran so fast and I just remember coming out... and started shooting."
The three friends came over to hang out. Half of the group went outside to smoke marijuana and when they all returned, Davis opened fire.
One of the reasons he said he opened fire was to protect his home and his 7-year-old daughter. She hid under a table.
"I just freaked out and did what I thought was the best thing to do," he said.
The victims all attended Polk State College in Winter Haven. Two of them knew Davis through working at the McDonald's in town.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
