Since he walked home, grabbed a gun only to return and shoot him, it becomes premeditated I think.
This is a tricky one for sure and I am not sure I would not have shot him myself either in that situation. He is going to jail/prison but for how long, I have no clue.
going home and getting the gun certainly makes it seem premeditated
however, even if he did at the time in the heat of the moment, you still aren't supposed to go around shooting people if you are not doing it in self-defence and this guy was not acting in self-defence
