Authorities have identified a 33-year-old man who deputies say was shot dead by his female roommate during a fight in Gardnerville.
Douglas County deputies say Jason Richard Thrift was killed Monday morning on Toler Lane. They've arrested 29-year-old Gardnerville resident Nichole Christine Followill at the scene.
Officials say the two were in a dispute when Followill pulled out a handgun and killed Thrift with a single shot. Sgt. Pat Brooks says it wasn't clear why the two were fighting.
Followill is set to appear in court Wednesday for an arraignment. She has been booked on a charge of open murder, which means prosecutors can decide whether to pursue manslaughter or murder charges.   (AP)
