Should be a beetle, it seems to have elytra. Hemipterans that look beetly often have overlapping wings, see the bottom of the bugguide page.

 

Seems like something in the click, firefly, soldier beetle realm based on shape alone, but I am not an expert identifier.

Ground beetles: Pasimachus sp. "Arizona". Click beetles: 1 Alaus melanops larva, Ampedus sp, Elateridae sp larva, Elaterid sp larvae, Melanotus cf. similis, Melanotus sp, Pyrophorus noctilucus. Also: A bunch of cockroach species, spiders, isopods, and a cat.

I believe it is Cephaloon lepturides.
