New documents were released today in the Lebec "peeping tom" murder case.

In the documents Gilmore said the night unfolded as he was laying in bed with his dogs drinking wine when his dogs started to bark.

He told police he went outside and saw 24 year old Benetio Carrillo peering into his daughter’s window. He then went back into his home to grab his 410 style single barrel shotgun.

He says he then approached Carrillo and told him to get on the ground, following Carrillo as he started to walk off the property and into the street.

Gilmore told police, "I was already committed," and told police he wasn't going to allow Carrillo to leave the block unless he was in handcuffs.

Gilmore told police he wasn't going to shoot until Carrillo reached for his waistband, but later told detectives, "I was going to shoot no matter what."

Gilmore told officials he was upset over a lack of previous police response times before when things were were being stolen from his car.

Police found Carrillo in the street with a gunshot wound to the back of the head and pants around his ankles. Police said Carrillo was dead on arrival and was unarmed.

Gilmore is currently being held on first degree murder charges. His bail is set at one million dollars. He is due back in court  on Monday, January 4.
