LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) - A 48-year-old man is accused of killing a 62-year-old man who lives in the same apartment complex in Longview, Wash.
The Cowlitz County Sheriff's office says David A. Peterson died at St. John Hospital early Saturday after he was shot in the abdomen with a pistol that belonged to him. An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.
Scott W. Humphreys was booked into the Cowlitz County Jail on investigation of second-degree murder. He is being held without bail pending a court hearing.
Deputies were called to the apartment late Friday after a witness reported seeing the two men arguing and hearing a gunshot.
