Dispute in Tempe mall's lot escalates to shooting

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a dispute in a Tempe mall's parking lot escalated into a shooting that left one woman with a minor injury.

Police spokesman Michael Pooley says the shooting in the Arizona Mills mall lot around 6 p.m. Saturday started out as a dispute between 20-year-old Voyee Smith and other males described as being in their late teens or early 20s.

Pooley says Smith and another person began exchanging gunfire at a time when the lot was nearly full.

A bullet grazed one of the arms of Smith's girlfriend.

She refused to be taken to a hospital.

No other injuries were reported.

The shooting's cause is under investigation.

The other suspects haven't been located.

Smith was taken into custody.

It's unclear whether Smith has an attorney.
