He made an initial court appearance on Tuesday. Anderson Sr. is also facing a first-degree attempted murder charge of his wife Denise Anderson.
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the incident began when Anderson Sr. was bitten by a dog that belonged to Anderson Jr.’s girlfriend. This made him upset, which led to an altercation.
Anderson Jr. was shot once in the chest, according to the police. Denise Anderson had graze wounds. Both people were transported to the hospital before the 23-year-old former college football player passed away.
Denise Anderson has been released following the hospital visit.

Anderson Sr. is now expected to be back in court on December 22nd. This family has been destroyed by the actions of this one man, who could potentially spend the rest of his life behind bars.
