The dead man was identified as 54-year-old Kevin William Spindler. Police also today identified the roommate who allegedly shot him to death, 48-year-old Joseph Arthur Nunn (pictured).
Police spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther said the department received a report at 3:15 p.m. Monday of someone with a gun in the 100 block of Hickory Street. That was followed by several phone calls from neighbors reporting shots fired.
Gunther said officers arrived and found Spindler in the front yard with gunshot wounds. Roseville Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.
She said Nunn was located nearby and was arrested. He is being held in Placer County Jail without bail on suspicion of homicide.
