A Prescott Valley man was taken into custody Tuesday after allegedly shooting his roommate in the arm.

According to the Prescott Valley police Department, John Frank Heinkel III, 58, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault per domestic violence, two counts of endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct by recklessly handling/discharging a firearm.

Officers were called out to a residence in the 8800 block of Waco Court at about 1:15 Tuesday morning. There they found a 56-year-old female victim with a gunshot wound to her arm.

The victim was taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center before being flown to John C. Lincoln North Mountain for advanced treatment.

Heinkel spoke with officers about the incident, allegedly telling them he was trying to break up a fight between two men and that he fired the gun to try and scare everyone involved, accidentally shooting the victim.

Alcohol was suspected to be a factor in the incident.
