Posted: Updated:

South Lake Tahoe Police are investigating an incident involving a man who killed himself after allegedly shooting at a neighbor Saturday night.

Police say it happened around 9:30 p.m. in the area of Brockway Avenue, near the intersection of Rubicon Trail.

When officers arrived on scene, witnesses told them that the unidentified suspect allegedly shot at another man during an argument outside a home. The man was not injured in the incident.

He later told police that he went to the suspect's home to talk about his vehicle being damaged. Police say the suspect then allegedly pulled out a revolver and aimed it at the man. The victim immediately ran off and heard a shot being fired. Police say the suspect then ran off, away from his home.

South Lake Tahoe Police were assisted by the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office and the California Highway Patrol to set up a perimeter and a K-9 unit to look for the suspect. 

Police say during the search, they saw the suspect run into the street on Rubicon Trail and kill himself in front of officers. Authorities then searched his home to make sure there were no other victims.

Police say the investigation is on-going. If you have any more information on this case, you're being asked to call detectives at (530) 542-6100 and refer to the case number: 1301-0592.
