LAVEEN, Ariz. (AP) - Phoenix police have arrested a man suspected of firing a gun outside a casino on the Gila River Indian Reservation.

Police say officers located the suspect after the shooting Friday night at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and he was taken into custody without incident.

Gila River police are searching for another man believed to have been involved. He is described as 5-foot-10, black and in his late 20s.

Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino spokeswoman Melody Hudson says nobody was hurt.

Hudson says two guests got into an argument in the parking lot and one shot into the air. She says they were not staying at the hotel but were reportedly at the casino earlier in the day.

The casino was forced to close temporarily while police investigated.
