Here are two things Jaquin Donell Han doesn't like: being punched in the face and giving change during his weed deals.

According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, both of those things led to Han shooting and killing one of his customers Saturday night.

The sheriff's office says Han, 28, was a traveling weed salesman dropping off some pot at 26-year-old Michael Smith's Lauderdale Lakes house shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Smith went out to Han's car for his special delivery and expected to receive $5 change for his payment.

Han did not comply with the change-giving, which led to an argument, which also led to Han being socked in the face by Smith, police say.

Han then pulled out his gun and shot Smith, according to the sheriff's office.

Fire rescue took Smith to the Broward General Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Sheriff's deputies showed up at Han's house shortly after the shooting and arrested him without incident.

Han has been charged with one count of second-degree murder and is currently being held without bond in the Broward County Jail.
