Authorities have confirmed the identity of the suspect accused of shooting and killing another man following an argument in South Lake Tahoe Saturday.

Roy C. Figaro, a 62-year-old South Lake Tahoe resident, is being held in the El Dorado County jail on a charge of murder. He is accused of shooting and killing 44-year-old Christopher Kitchen, of South Lake Tahoe.

Police responded to a call of shots fired in the 1000 block of Julie Lane near the Y at 5:24 p.m. Saturday. They found Kitchen in the road with life-threatening injuries.

Kitchen was transported to Barton Memorial Hospital, where he ultimately died from his wounds.

After a standoff, police say Figaro surrendered.

An investigation revealed there was an argument between Figaro and Kitchen before shots were fired, according to police.
