SADDLEBROOKE, Ariz. -- A 68-year-old man reportedly found his 63-year-old wife in bed with a 22-year-old man early Saturday morning and shot him.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Department said the shooting occurred at a residence in the 38000 block of South Apache Peak Drive in Saddlebrooke, Ariz.

Deputies said they received a 911 call about a shooting. When they arrived on scene, they spoke with the 68-year-old male resident who called 911.

The man told deputies he fell asleep and when he woke up his wife was gone.

He went looking for her and ended up finding her in their guest house, in bed with 22-year-old Trevor Chapman of Tucson.

The male resident poked Chapman with his cane to wake him up. When Chapman awoke, he allegedly became verbally abusive toward the man.

Chapman refused to leave the residence after being told to, and the man reportedly felt threatened when Chapman came at him. That's when the man allegedly responded by shooting at Chapman with a .410 gun.

Chapman suffered minor injuries after the fired shot struck a nearby wall. He refused any medical treatment and was booked into the Pinal County Jail for one count of disorderly conduct.
