PHOENIX -- Authorities said a Phoenix man has been arrested in the shooting of another man and two children after the suspect vomited on the victim's pet.

Phoenix police said 22-year-old Anthony Jamar Houston was arrested Wednesday after a bizarre shooting Tuesday evening at an apartment complex at 32nd Street and Thomas Road.

According to police, a 41-year-old man was walking his dog when Houston vomited on the pet from a second-story landing. Authorities said after the two exchanged words, Houston shot the other man at his doorstep.

Police said a 14-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy, who were in the apartment's living room, were also shot.

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

It was unclear if Houston had an attorney.
