PEACH SPRINGS, Ariz. -- A man in Yavapai County is accused of trying to kill another man over money.

Bryan Wilson, 52, is facing attempted homicide, aggravated assault and armed robbery charges.

According to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office, the men got into an argument over money that the 68-year-old victim owed Wilson.

Wilson was armed with a .22-caliber rifle while standing outside the victim's trailer near Peach Springs Saturday night.

YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said the victim gave Wilson some cash, but Wilson shot him in the leg then tried to shoot him again.

D'Evelyn said a male witness was able to grab the rifle from Wilson. Wilson then pulled a revolver from his belt holster and the witness was able to take that gun from his grasp.

Wilson pulled another pistol from a pocket but relinquished it when he heard police sirens.

The victim was airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment of injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Wilson remains in the Camp Verde Detention Center on a $200,000 bond.
