TEMPE, AZ — Police say a man was arrested following a shooting that took place during an argument about off-leash dogs in Tempe.
Tempe Police Department's officers were called to an apartment near US 60 and Mill Avenue Tuesday night around 10:45 p.m.
A man was found at the scene with a gunshot wound to the hand.
Investigators learned the victim had confronted a man, later identified as Travonn White, about having his dogs off-leash in the courtyard. The victim claimed one of White’s dogs bit his ankle and a verbal argument took place.

During a struggle, police say the suspect fired one round from his gun, hitting the victim in the hand.
White was located and arrested, and is facing one count of aggravated assault.
