COTTONWOOD, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities have arrested two Cottonwood men in an attempted drive-by shooting.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies say 33-year-old Monty Pritchard, who is believed to be the driver in the incident, turned himself in Wednesday morning. He was booked on charges of facilitation of first-degree murder, hindering prosecution and driving on a suspended license.

Aaron Martin was also arrested on multiple counts including attempted first-degree murder.

Sheriff’s spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn says the two are accused of driving by a home Tuesday night so that Martin could fire several rounds at the victim.

Investigators say the 20-year-old Martin and the 33-year-old victim were in a dispute over a woman.

The victim was not injured.

Both men are in a Camp Verde jail. It wasn’t immediately known if they have attorneys.
