Anthony Jamar Houston

PHOENIX — A Phoenix man has been arrested in the shooting of another man and two children after the suspect vomited on the victim’s pet, authorities say.

Anthony Jamar Houston, 22, was arrested Wednesday following a bizarre shooting Tuesday evening at an apartment complex, Phoenix police say.

A 41-year-old man was walking his dog when Houston vomited on the pet from a second story landing. Authorities say after the two exchange words, Houston shot the 41-year-old at his doorstep.

A 14-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy, who were in the apartment’s living room, were also shot.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital and is listed in stable condition. Police say the two children are suffering from non-life threatening injuries.

It was unclear if Houston had an attorney.
