A former editor of "Guns and Ammo" magazine is charged with second-degree murder in connection with a shooting on Wednesday.
Richard Venola, 53, was arrested at his home on Mayan Drive in the small community of Golden Valley.
Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responding to a neighbor's call about a shooting found the victim, 39-year-old James O'Neill, outside the house. O'Neill had been shot in the chest, according to police.
Officials said a large caliber rifle was among the evidence collected at the scene.
A police report did not reference a motive for the shooting.
Venola was named the 12th editor of "Guns and Ammo" in 2008, according to an article on the publication's website.
A spokesperson for the publication told FOX5 Venola left "Guns and Ammo" in 2010, describing it as an "amicable" departure.
