AZ Man Arrested in Shooting of Tow Truck Driver

Here's the AP story from the Arizona Republic:

A disgruntled Phoenix man allegedly opened fire on a tow truck driver with a rifle, wounding the man several times in the legs before barricading himself inside his home.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said in a statement that police don't believe the wounds suffered by the 40-year-old victim, whose name wasn't immediately available, are life-threatening.

Twenty-six-year-old Jesse Corman surrendered to police about four hours after the 7:30 p.m. shooting Sunday, and was booked for investigation of attempted second-degree murder, endangerment and unlawful discharge of a weapon.

Corman allegedly told police that he felt that the suspect was taking too long unloading his disabled car, and also believed the man had stolen his car keys.
