GLENDALE, Ariz. — A man charged with shooting two men at a Wal-Mart store in Glendale nearly a year ago has been arrested in California.

Authorities had been looking for 22-year-old Almalik Ward since the Dec. 7 shooting at a WalMart.

Glendale police spokesman Sgt. Scott Waite says Ward had gotten involved in a conflict with the two victims while in the store’s parking lot.

Waite says Ward followed the victims inside the store, confronted them and fired at them. One victim returned fire.

The two victims’ injuries didn’t threaten their lives.

No one else was injured.

It’s unclear when and where in California Ward was arrested.

A phone call left for Ward’s attorney, Stephen Crawford, wasn’t immediately returned Wednesday morning.

Ward is charged with aggravated assault, endangerment and other counts.
