PHOENIX (AP) -- Bond is set at $180,000 for a suspect accused of fatally shooting another man in the town of Guadalupe near Phoenix.
 
Ramiro Manuel Garcia had his initial appearance Monday in Maricopa County Superior Court. He doesn't have an attorney yet.
 
The 22-year-old Garcia was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder after Friday night's incident. He told investigators that he shot the man in self-defense following an argument.
 
Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies say when they arrived, Garcia and his uncle were standing near the victim who was lying in the street in a gunshot wound to the chest.
 
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Deputies say they found two handguns and a bullet casing near the victim that matched one of the guns located at the scene.
