SaddleBrooke in shock after shooting

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

We are learning new details about a situation in SaddleBrooke that ended with a man allegedly shooting another man he found in bed with his wife. It happened in the 38,000 block of South Apache View on Saturday.

The story has created a lot of buzz around SaddleBrooke. On Monday, Tucson News Now spoke to the woman at the center of it. We asked how she met the young man and how long they've known each other, but she had no comment.

A community normally talking about birdies and bogeys is now talking about a shooting not par for the course.

"We were kind of shocked," said Andy Higgins, Asst. Golf Professional with SaddleBrooke One. "It was kind of a surprise that something like that would happen out here."

"Quite startled," said Larry Kleges, a neighbor.

A community still in a state of shock as Pinal County Sheriff's Detectives continue their investigation. They released a new image of the gun used during the incident.

The shooting happened Saturday morning when a homeowner found his 62-year-old wife in bed with 22-year-old Stephen Chapman who was naked.

The homeowner poked Chapman with his cane to wake him up. That's when deputies say Chapman came charging at the homeowner, so he fired a warning shot, hitting Chapman in the hand.

Neighbors say they heard people arguing moments before hearing one gunshot.

"We did see police cars coming in," said another neighbor.

With so much commotion, it created a lot of buzz in this normally quiet town.

"Everybody there was talking about it," said Kleges. "I went golfing everybody there was talking about it. It's a big thing."

Chapman refused medical treatment from paramedics. He has been released from jail on a charge of disorderly conduct.
