PROVO, Utah — Authorities say a man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a shooting at a Provo home.

Provo police say 22-year-old Caleb Plainer was taken into custody after Friday night’s shooting.

It was still unclear Sunday if Plainer has a lawyer yet.

Police say 22-year-old Robbie Heiner was shot in the chest while visiting the home and fled to a neighbor’s house for help after being shot.

The shooting reportedly followed a dispute over a gun and police say a weapon has been recovered from the scene.

The Deseret News says Heiner was treated for a single gunshot wound to the chest at Utah Valley Hospital.
