A new homeowner admitted to shooting and killing his realtor after purchasing a house from him without seeing it first, WAVY reported.
Police officers responded to a 911 call from Albert A. Baglione confessing that he “shot [his] realtor,” WAVY reported Monday. Police arrived and found that Baglione was holding a weapon, the outlet reported. Baglione reportedly confessed and closed his door.
Police said they heard a gunshot from behind the door, according to WCPO.
After Baglione had shut his door on the police, SWAT surrounded the house, secured a perimeter and entered to find Baglione dead, according to WCPO. Arn-Oelshlegel was found inside as well with a fatal gunshot wound. (RELATED: Man Pleads Guilty To Murdering His Mother, Grandparents With Baseball Bat)
Eighty-four-year-old Baglione had bought a house without seeing it and moved into his property on Thursday in Portsmouth, Virginia.
Baglione called his real estate agent, 41 year-old Soren Arn-Oelschlegel, to return the house, a neighbor told WTKR. The neighbor also said he had only moved into the home one day earlier. The real estate agent came to the house to help Baglione, who was unhappy with his purchase, according to WCPO.
According to Portsmouth police, the incident happened around 5:59 p.m. Friday at a resident on Bowling Road. https://t.co/ezvJRYmCQM

Arn-Oelschlegel was a real estate agent for Long & Foster who allegedly never met Baglione before their interaction with the irritated buyer, the New York Post reported. He was also a member of LGBTQ non-profit Hampton Roads Pride.
“The LGBTQ community of Hampton Roads has lost a vibrant person [who’s] hard to replace,” said Rudy Almanzor, president of the non-profit.
Baglione bought the 750-square-foot single-story home on Oct. 4 for $160,000, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
