Two men who died in a homicide-suicide after arguing over rent money in their Lakewood mobile home trailer Monday have been identified.
Shawn Noble, 46, is believed to have fatally shot his roommate, Greg Satterlee, 49, multiple times after learning that Satterlee did not have his rent money.
He then called a friend and asked for help moving and hiding Satterlee’s body, police said.
When the friend refused, Noble allegedly said he was going to kill himself and hung up the phone.

The friend immediately called 911, directing police to the mobile home park in the 6500 block of 150th Street Southwest. It took officers roughly 15 minutes to find Noble and Satterlee’s mobile home since they did not have an exact address.
When they arrived, police were unable to make contact with Noble so they called in a SWAT team.
When SWAT members entered the home, they found Satterlee dead from multiple gunshot wounds and Noble dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
The shootings are both believed to have taken place before police arrived.
Noble did not have a criminal record but was the subject of at least one mental health check in the past.
Police were called to his home in April after he became despondent over a breakup with a girlfriend. Prior to that, Pierce County sheriff’s detectives responded to a similar call for Noble in 2009.
