TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police say a man fatally shot his neighbor in self-defense after an argument turned physical.

Police Sgt. Pete Dugan says the incident occurred shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday inside the man’s garage.

According to Dugan, the man and 25-year-old Denario Thompson got into a verbal altercation.
