(NEW YORK) — The charges against Tommy Gilbert, Jr., the man accused of killing his hedge-fund manager father, were unsealed on Thursday, including second-degree murder.

According to the New York County District Attorney, Gilbert, Jr., 30, also faces second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of forgery devices and unlawful possession of ammunition. Gilbert allegedly fatally shot his father in his parents’ Manhattan apartment.

“As alleged in the indictment, the defendant intentionally shot and killed a member of his own family,” District Attorney Cyrus Vance said in a statement. “He also possessed a private cache of ammunition and firearm attachments that might have enabled him to do even more tragic harm.”

Among the items allegedly recovered at Gilbert, Jr.’s apartment were loose ammunition, multiple .40-caliber Glock magazines loaded with varying numbers of rounds, an owners manual and carrying case for a Glock pistol, a speed loader, a cable lock and a red dot sight attachment. Officers also found a credit card skimmer and more than 20 blank cards at Gilbert, Jr.’s apartment.
