PHOENIX - Authorities say a Phoenix man has been arrested in the shooting of another man and two children after the suspect vomited on the victim's pet.
Phoenix police say 22-year-old Anthony Jamar Houston was arrested Wednesday following a bizarre shooting Tuesday evening at an apartment complex.
According to police, a 41-year-old man was walking his dog when Houston vomited on the pet from a second story landing. Authorities say after the two exchange words, Houston shot the 41-year-old at his doorstep.
Police say a 14-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy, who were in the apartment's living room, were also shot.
Authorities say the man was taken to a nearby hospital and is listed in stable condition. Police say the two children are suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
It was unclear if Houston had an attorney.
