MESA, Ariz. -- Authorities say an argument between two men outside a Mesa nail salon led to one shooting the other.

Sgt. Steve Berry said officers responding to reports of shots fired around 2 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Power and McKellips roads found a man suffering from gunshot wounds outside Elite Nails.

Berry said the suspected shooter, an ex-employee of the nail salon, was sitting in his vehicle and was arrested without incident.

Investigators said the suspect showed up at the salon and the victim, a current employee, came outside to speak with him.

Police said at some point during their conversation, the suspect shot the victim with a handgun.

Berry said the victim is listed in stable condition at a hospital.

Police have not yet filed charges against him.
