PHOENIX (AP) - A man planned to rob a Phoenix home but stumbled walking up to it - setting off his revolver and fatally shooting his co-conspirator, police say.

Authorities say that after his arrest, Jose Perez-Torres admitted to the Sept. 25 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Eric Hernandez-Tellez. Phoenix police say the 21-year-old Perez-Torres initially fled the scene, but they caught up with him later in Tempe.

He was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and other charges stemming from warrants.
