A 78-year-old Cheyenne man has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the death of a man in east Cheyenne.

According to arrest records, Charles Samuel Richmond was arrested at his home at 3338 Belaire Avenue around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Police spokesman Officer Kevin Malatesta says it appears Richmond got into a fight with a man who lived at the residence and shot him to death.

"We're trying to establish all of the details of that," said Malatesta.  "We're withholding the name of the deceased male pending family notification."

Richmond has yet to be formally charged. He was scheduled to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court Thursday afternoon, but it's been moved to Friday.
