PHOENIX — Phoenix police say a woman’s fiance has been arrested in the fatal shooting of another man at the woman’s home.

Sgt. Vince Lewis says 37-year-old Shaun Williams was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death Monday of 45-year-old Drummond Jentzen at the woman’s home.

Lewis says the woman told police she was inside when she heard a gunshot and then found Jentzen injured outside before she called 911 and attempted CPR.

According to Lewis, the woman was questioned further after video surveillance contradicted her account.

Lewis says further investigation resulted in Williams’ arrest Friday.

It’s not known whether he has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

Asked about a possible motive, Lewis noted that the woman and Williams were in a relationship and that the woman had given Jentzen permission to be on the property.
