    A 55-year-old man is in custody after two people were shot in northwestern Arizona on Wednesday, according to authorities.

    Deputies responded to a home on W. Saddleback Road in White Hills, about 70 miles southeast of Las Vegas, the Mohave County Sheriff's Office said in a press release.

    Someone called 911 saying he and another man had been shot, according to the sheriff's office.

    Deputies arrived and provided medical aid for both victims until EMS arrived. The person who called 911 said the suspect, identified as Donald Cory Dehar, left the scene and was at the home next door.

    Authorities say deputies made contact with Dehar in the home next door, and he surrendered without incident. Dehar has been booked into Mohave County's detention facility on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a prohibited possessor.

    One victim was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center with injuries not believed to be life-threatening, according, to the sheriff's office. The second victim's injuries were more serious, and that person was taken to a hospital in Las Vegas.
