TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pinal County Sheriff's received a 911 call from an elderly gentleman who reported a shooting at his residence in the 38000 block of South Apache Peak Drive, Saddlebrooke.

According to Pinal County's Tim Gaffney, deputies arrived on scene and spoke to the 68-year-old man. The man told deputies he fell asleep in the main house and when he woke up, his wife was not in bed.

He then proceeded to go into their small guest house where he found his wife, age 63, in bed with Stephen Trevor Chapman, 22.

The reporting party has Parkinson's disease and uses a cane and sometimes a walker to get around. The man used his cane to "poke" at Chapman to wake him up and to tell him to get out of his house.

Chapman became verbally abusive towards the man and began to yell profanities. Chapman refused to leave the residence despite being told to.

When the man told Chapman he was going to call the Sheriff for help, Chapman came charging at him in a threatening manner.

The elderly man, who grabbed his gun for protection, fired a "warning shot" at Chapman. The round struck a nearby wall and Chapman received a minor injury.

"This was an unusual call for our deputies in an active senior community," said Sheriff Paul Babeu. "Clearly, this young man should have heeded the warnings of the home owner to leave his residence and to stop sleeping with his wife. The young man is lucky he only got poked with a cane and hit with a stray pellet from the shot gun."

Chapman refused medical treatment for his hand and is booked into the Pinal County Jail for one count of Disorderly Conduct.
