GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 33-year-old man who deputies say was shot dead by a woman during a fight in Gardnerville.

Douglas County deputies say Jason Richard Thrift was killed Monday morning. They've arrested 29-year-old Gardnerville resident Nichole Christine Followill on suspicion of open murder.

Officials say the two were in a dispute when Followill pulled out a handgun and shot Thrift once.

She is set to appear in court Wednesday for an arraignment.

It wasn't clear why the two were fighting.
