IOWA, La. (AP) - A 64-year-old Iowa (EYE’-oh-WAY) man has been arrested in the death of his roommate.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said in a news release the incident began Sunday morning when Randall Austin was arguing with 40-year-old Sidney Moore Jr.

Myers says the fight escalated and Moore told deputies he grabbed a shotgun from his bedroom.

Myers says Moore was fighting with Austin for the shotgun when it discharged.

She says Moore was shot during the exchange and died from the wound.

Austin was booked with manslaughter and his bond set at $250,000.

Online jail records did not list an attorney for Austin.
