Residents of the home on the 4300 block of Northridge Place said John Lorenz, who owns the house, shot their roommate in the abdomen.

Lorenz was booked into the El Paso County jail at 4:30 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of first-degree murder, said Jacqueline Kirby, spokeswoman for the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

The victim's name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.
