A Flagstaff man was in critical condition and another man was in custody after a shooting Thursday night.

Flagstaff police arrested George Azar, 54, about 7:30 p.m. at a residence in the 2700 block of North Rose Street after officers found 38-year-old Larry Hernandez with a gunshot wound.

A search warrant was served and evidence taken from the house before Azar was booked into the Coconino County Detention Facility on charges of attempted second-degree homicide and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police did not say what sparked the shooting.
