(Scroll down for video) People in Florida, are devastated over the senseless death of a well-known and beloved drummer.

The drummer, 33-year-old David Patrick Brown, has been playing at the Hennessy’s Bar and Grill on Forest Lakes Boulevard in Oldsmar, for a long time.

He loved the eatery and he was training to become a cook there. However, he was not able to fulfill his dreams as he was killed by a former police officer.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said that 43-year-old Brian Mytych, who is an 18-year veteran from Michigan, got into a fight with Brown, last week.

Mytych, who was drunk, was ordered to leave the bar, and when he refused, he was arrested.

Yesterday, he returned to the bar, despite getting a trespass warning. People including Brown asked him to leave, and he complied.

However, he returned with a 45-caliber handgun, and he fatally shot Brown, who is an Army veteran.

Mytych then told all the other customers to leave and he called 911 to turn himself in. He stayed on the scene until the deputies arrived and arrested him.

He was charged with one count of first-degree murder.

Brown leaves behind a wife and son.
