HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A fired ex-employee has been arrested on suspicion of shooting his former manager at a central Arkansas branch of Habitat for Humanity.

Hot Springs Police announced Friday that they had arrested Patrick Lee McElroy on Wednesday. The 58-year-old Hot Springs man was arrested on a charge of first-degree battery and bond has been set at $5,000.

Police received a 911 call about a shooting at the Habitat for Humanity parking lot about 5 p.m. Wednesday. The manager was found in the parking lot with a single gunshot wound to his upper body that police called a non-life-threatening injury.

Police say McElroy was arrested a short time later in a downtown parking lot.

Garland County jail records show he was being held Friday and no attorney information is listed.
