homicide

We had a homicide early Monday morning.  The facts follow:

Dead is James G. Maistros, m/54, of 1795 W.25 St. #1446.  He was found shot in the head inside a residence at 3137 W.99 St. at 12:25 a.m. yesterday.  Arrested is the resident at that address, Arthur T. Faraci, m/48. 

Detectives learned that the victim, suspect and others were at the suspect's home drinking when the victim and suspect began to argue.  During the argument, the suspect pulled a handgun (.38 caliber Colt) from a dresser drawer.  Those in the residence fled leaving the victim and suspect alone inside.  Shortly thereafter, attempts were made to check on the suspect and victim.  When no response was received we were called to the scene.  Upon CPD's arrival the suspect was taken into custody.  While searching the home officers discovered the victim dead with an apparent gunshot wound to the head.  No charges have been filed at this writing.
