FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A Flagstaff man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted second-degree homicide in a shooting case.

Flagstaff police say 38-year-old David Scrum has been booked into the Coconino County Jail as investigators try to get warrants to search his home and vehicle for the gun and other evidence.

Police say a man wanted to report a crime late Wednesday night but couldn’t get inside the jail’s lobby.

He was confronted by Scrum in the parking lot, who asked if he worked there.

Scum then allegedly shot the victim and robbed him before fleeing in a vehicle.

Police say Scrum was identified and later found at a Flagstaff hospital.

They say he allegedly confessed to being involved in the non-fatal shooting and was arrested.

It’s unclear if Scrum has a lawyer.
