HAYDEN, Idaho (AP) -- Authorities in northern Idaho say a 45-year-old man has died following an argument outside of a bar in Hayden and a suspect has been arrested.

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office says deputies found the victim lying in the parking lot and began life-saving efforts. The Hayden man, who name was not immediately released, later died at a hospital.

Authorities say 33-year-old Scott White of Coeur d'Alene has been arrested in connection with the death. White is charged with second-degree murder.

It's unclear if he has an attorney.

According to authorities, witnesses told deputies the victim and white got into an altercation in the bar, and White shot the man after the two went outside to the parking lot.
