NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A suspect has been charged with fatally shooting a man in the chest following an argument in North County Sunday night.

A neighbor told police the shots were fired shortly after 34-year-old Otis Adams and 45-year-old Craig Hollman were seen arguing in the front yard of Hollman's home in the 10400 block of Prince around 8 p.m.

According to police, Hollman threatened to shoot Adams during the argument. When police arrived, they found Adams laying in the front yard with a gunshot wound. 

Court documents say Hollman then attempted to hide the gun in a washing machine at his girlfriend's house. He is facing charges of first degree murder and armed criminal action, and is being held on $750,000 cash-only bond.
