Police have released the identity of a man shot and killed in east Cheyenne Wednesday.

Officer Kevin Malatesta says 41-year-old John-Paul Birgenheier was found dead outside his home at 3338 Belaire Avenue around 3:45 p.m.

Malatesta says Birgenheier got into a fight with his roommate, 78-year-old Charles Samuel Richmond, and Richmond shot him to death.

Malatesta couldn't say what the men were fighting about or how many times Birgenheier was shot, but says the two men were not related.

Richmond was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder. He's scheduled to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court today at 1:30 p.m.
