PHOENIX — Police arrested a suspect who said he shot his roommate after they were arguing over video games on Thursday, authorities said.

Phoenix police responded to a call around 9:35 p.m. to the area of Central Avenue and Hatcher Road where they found Cesar Torres-Gonzalez in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Torres-Gonzalez told police he shot someone and was detained on the scene, authorities said.

The victim was found inside the apartment complex with multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
