KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man who they say was fatally shot by his roommate in Kingman.

Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 30-year-old Christopher Dayton Young of Kingman was found dead in a roadway early Monday with gunshot wounds to the head, neck and face.

They say 33-year-old Christopher Robin Kacos has been arrested and jailed on suspicion of felony second-degree murder.

Sheriff's officials say Young had been living at the home Kacos owns for about a month.

A woman alleged that Young hit her on the head after she complained about loud music coming from the house.

Kacos told authorities Young told him about the assault before running into the desert.

They say Kacos later admitted his involvement in the shooting and was arrested.
