PHOENIX -- A man was shot outside his home on 91st Avenue and Encanto Boulevard in Phoenix early Wednesday morning.
 
The man claimed he was waiting in his driveway around 2 a.m. for his family to come home when two unfamiliar men in a pickup truck approached his house.
 
The two men started a conversation with the man in the driveway that escalated into a verbal argument between the three of them, according to police.
 
One man inside the truck fired two to three shots, one of which struck the victim in the driveway. He was transported to a local hospital and is expected to recover.
 
The men in the pickup truck took off, but officers caught up with them later on down the street and took the men into custody.
 
They were clearly intoxicated when taken into custody, according to police.
 
The victim claims he did not know the two men.
 
Police have not yet released the names of the victim or alleged attackers.
