TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Tempe say a man is facing aggravated assault and disorderly conduct charges after allegedly shooting his roommate during an argument over rent.

Shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday, police officers responded to a 911 call from a man reporting that his roommate had just shot him in the leg at their apartment.

The victim fled the residence in his vehicle and stopped at a nearby gas station.

Officers located the victim with a gunshot wound to his right leg.

Police say he was transported to a Tempe hospital and is in stable condition.

They say 54-year-old Robert Tate told the victim earlier in the day to move out of the apartment.

It was unclear Wednesday if Tate has a lawyer yet.
