Swigart was a roofing contractor in the Tri-Cities. He owned JR Swigart, Co. The shooting happened just north of Bickelton.

Deputies from Klickitat County Sheriff's Office responded to the shooting that followed an argument. We don't know the details, however, the argument allegedly got physical before Allen shot Swigart.
