LONGVIEW — A 48-year-old man is accused of killing a 62-year-old man who lives in the same apartment complex in Longview.

The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s office said the victim died at St. John Hospital early Saturday while being treated for a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Investigators believe the two are related but did not release details. They were not immediately identified.

Deputies were called to the apartment late Friday after a witness reported seeing two men arguing and hearing a gunshot.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he died.
