GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities have identified a 33-year-old man who deputies say was shot dead by a woman during a fight in Gardnerville.
Douglas County deputies say Jason Richard Thrift was killed Monday morning. They've arrested 29-year-old Gardnerville resident Nichole Christine Followill on suspicion of open murder.
Officials say the two were in a dispute when Followill pulled out a handgun and shot Thrift once.
She is set to appear in court Wednesday for an arraignment.
It wasn't clear why the two were fighting.
