TOLLESON, AZ — Tolleson police say a man suspected of shooting his co-worker during an argument at a warehouse Sunday night has been arrested.

Police originally said a dispute between an 18-year-old and a 21-year-old led to the shooting near 99th Avenue and Buckeye Road.

Officials say one man shot the other in the parking lot and fled the scene.

According to official police paperwork, witnesses saw the suspect, identified as 18-year-old Camron James Granado, fire three shots, hitting the victim and causing fatal wounds.

Witnesses also reported seeing the suspect drive away in his vehicle after running over the victim.

A Kroger spokesperson said Monday the warehouse belongs to Fry's but is leased to a third-party supplier and the shooting incident did not involve Fry's employees. However, according to police documents, the suspect is employed with Fry's and Fry's management confirmed the suspect and victim both work for the company.

Police say the suspect turned himself in after the shooting.

He was booked into jail on two counts of aggravated assault and one count of first-degree murder.
