Detectives believe a woman living with a man in a southwest Las Vegas apartment shot her roommate to death Thursday night.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, officers received a call of a shooting just before 9:30 p.m. at The Falls apartment complex on Warm Springs Road near El Capitan Way.

According to Metro, detectives found the victim and his roommate, identified as Mary Pitrello, 26, had an altercation before shots were fired.
