LONGVIEW, Wash. – A Longview man was shot and killed at his apartment during a fight with a neighbor Friday night, deputies said.

At around 10 p.m., witnesses called deputies after hearing a gunshot and seeing a man hit the ground during a fight at an apartment in the 4500 block of Ocean Beach Highway in Longview, said Sheriff Mark Nelson with the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim, 62-year-old David "Lonnie" Peterson, was taken to the hospital where he died from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Police arrested 48-year-old Scott Humphreys who reportedly lives in the same complex. He was booked in the Cowlitz County Jail on murder charges.

Investigators said the two men are related in some way.
