EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A 60-year-old West Texas man is in the county jail after police say he became angry when his vehicle failed a state inspection and he shot the owner of the auto shop.

Arturo Garcia Medina was being held Wednesday in the El Paso County jail on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say he took his vehicle into the El Paso shop Monday and began arguing with the owner when he received a failing inspection.

Investigators say Medina pulled a weapon and shot the 52-year-old owner in the abdomen. The victim was taken to a hospital where he was admitted in critical condition.

An employee of the shop was grazed by gunfire.

Officers tracked Medina to his home where he was arrested.

Online jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
