A man has been arrested in an early Sunday morning shooting that occurred following a concert in South Lake Tahoe.
Police received reports about 2:40 a.m. of a shooting at Beach Retreat & Lodge at 3411 Lake Tahoe Blvd., where a concert had just ended. A Beach Retreat employee followed the suspected shooter to the parking lot of a CVS store at 3471 Lake Tahoe Blvd, according to a Police Department news release, and officers detained several people in that area.
An investigation determined that the suspect, identified by police as 30-year-old Timothy Althouse of South Lake Tahoe, had been involved in an argument after the concert with the victim, whom he knew. Althouse allegedly pulled a gun and fired one round at the victim’s legs. The victim was not struck and Althouse left the scene, the news release said.
Officers contacted Althouse and located a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun nearby . The gun had been reported as missing to the Redding Police Department around 2015, the news release said.
