Man fatally wounded after girlfriend seeks refuge

GREEN VALLEY, Arizona -— Pima County authorities are
investigating the shooting death of a man found next to his
vehicle near a Green Valley residence where his girlfriend
sought refuge.

Sheriff’s officials identify the dead man as 28-year-old
Anthony Wayne Peters.

They say deputies found his body early Saturday after a
girlfriend of a neighbor called to report a shooting.

Sheriff’s Deputy Tom Peine says Peters followed his
girlfriend to the neighbor’s home after a domestic dispute.

Peine says Peter’s girlfriend told deputies she escaped
after Peters forced her into his vehicle. She said she then
heard gunfire and saw Peters drive off.

Peine says the neighbor has acknowledged shooting his gun.
Peine says no arrest has been made.
