LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 26-year-old woman has been arrested in the shotgun slaying of her male roommate at their Las Vegas apartment.

Mary Pitrello was arrested on charges of murder, robbery and assault after the shooting Thursday night in the southwest part of the valley.

Pitrello is accused of getting a shotgun in her bedroom after an argument with her roommate and firing one shot through his closed bedroom door when he was on the phone. The shot struck him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the suspect and a female visitor fled in a car but were found later inside a business.

The other woman is not expected to face charges.

The names of the victim and the other woman were not immediately released.
