A suspect was arrested after a man was shot outside a Circle K in Avondale Friday afternoon, police said.
Avondale police responded just after 12:30 p.m. Friday to reports of a gunshot wound near Lower Buckeye and El Mirage roads.
The man was found shot in front of the store near a white Cadillac that appeared to have at least five bullet holes on the driver’s side, Avondale Police Department Sgt. Thomas Alt said.
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office worked with Avondale police to identify Anthony Deshawn Watson of Avondale as a suspect in the shooting. Washington was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Jail on a charge of attempted first-degree homicide.
The man who was shot was transported to a local hospital and was in stable condition Saturday with a non-life threatening wound, Alt said.
