A Pennsylvania father allegedly shot a 17-year-old because he believed the boy got his daughter hooked on "drugs or coke."

Michael D'Biagio, 41, is charged with criminal homicide and aggravated assault for allegedly fatally gunning down Darren Jevcak outside Scustie's Pizza Shop, according to the criminal complaint obtained by the New Castle News.

During questioning, police said D'Biagio admitted to shooting Jevcak "five or six times" because he had allegedly corrupted his daughter, who he said had been sneaking out of the house and meeting up with Jevcak to do drugs. 

On Friday, D'Biagio reached out to Jevcak to ask where he was, the complaint states. When he replied that he was at the pizza shop where he works, D'Biagio drove there and confronted Jevcak, allegedly opening fire.

"He realized he had shot Jevcak in the arm and Jevcak went down to the ground," the complaint states. D'Biagio then approached Jevcak and allegedly shot him again, according to a witness, the New Castle News reported. 

When police arrive after the shooting, D'Biagio laid down outside and allowed them to arrest him. He has not yet entered a plea.

Jevcak was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
