PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say a man who fatally shot two men involved in a business dispute with him made advance arrangements for the killings.

According to The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/XDbggZ ), police reports say 70-year-old Arthur Douglas Harmon borrowed the guns he used and rented his escape vehicle without the knowledge of relatives.

Harmon fled after the Jan. 30 shooting at an office complex where he'd gone for a mediation session in a lawsuit he'd filed against a company.

The company's president and its lawyer were killed, and a bystander was wounded.

Harmon was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound the next day in Mesa.

According to police, Harmon borrowed the guns from a friend. Police say Harmon's wife and son accompanied him to the mediation session but drove separately.
