Updated August 13, 2018 - 3:52 pm

The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a man who died Friday after a fight with a roommate.

Scott Allen Putzier, 61, was found by Las Vegas police unresponsive inside of an apartment on the 1700 block of Stewart Avenue, near Bruce Street, around 5:20 p.m., Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer said.

Officers attempted to revive Putzier but he died at the scene, police said.

Putzier lived in the apartment with two adults and a child, including 38-year-old Seth Alfredson, police said. Putzier had a physical fight with Alfredson on Friday morning.

Putzier was unresponsive after the fight, and a roommate called 911 after he could not be revived later in the day, police said.

Alfredson was arrested Friday and booked in the Clark County Detention Center without bail. He faces a murder charge.

The coroner’s office had not determined Putzier’s cause and manner of death Monday morning.
