PHOENIX - Authorities say a 61-year-old Phoenix property owner shot a 26-year-old man after the owner found the man sleeping on his property and the man refused to clean up his feces.
Phoenix Police Department Sgt. Tommy Thompson said the bizarre shooting occurred early Saturday morning.
According to police, the 61-year-old told the younger man to leave but found feces close to where the man was sleeping. Police say the owner demanded that the feces be removed but the man just walked away.
Investigators say that's when the owner chased the man down, the pair got into a fight and the younger man swung a chain. Police say the owner then shot the younger man in the chest.
The wounded man was taken to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.
