 LIBBY -- Henry Carl Schroeder of Lincoln County is facing a negligent homicide charge after a man was found dead on Sunday afternoon.

Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe says a man walked into the Sheriff's Office at around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday and reported that a shooting had taken place in the 1300 Washington Avenue in Libby.

Libby Police and Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies responded to the home and asked the man inside - later identified as Schroeder - to leave.

Schroeder, 74 years old, was arrested at the residence without incident following an investigation and is now facing a charge of felony negligent homicide. 

He's also been charged with felony tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.

Kimberlee Ann Patterson, 43, of Libby was later arrested at the Sheriff's Office without incident, and has been charged with felony tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.

Authorities say they found a .380 caliber pistol, empty casings and bullets at the scene.
