Tempe police say a man is facing several charges after allegedly shooting another man in a UPS parking lot on Tuesday morning. 

According to police, officers responded to a report of a shooting in the area of McClintock Drive and Apache Boulevard. 

Police said Luis Humberto Perez-Gonzales, 29, shot the victim as he was exiting his vehicle following a brief argument. 

The victim remains in the hospital and is in stable condition. 

Perez-Gonzales then fled the scene in a vehicle and was later located by responding officers. 

As officers tried to stop Perez-Gonzales, he wrecked his vehicle in the area of McClintock Drive and Cornell. 

Police said Perez-Gonzales bailed from the vehicle and ran on foot before he was eventually detained by officers. 

While detained, police say Perez-Gonzales tried to kick a uniformed officer in the head. 

He was booked on several charges including endangerment, aggravated assault-deadly weapon, aggravated assault-officer, felony flight, and criminal damage.
