    Police incident near 75th Avenue and Indian School Road
    A man armed with a hammer was shot during an argument in a west Phoenix neighborhood Thursday morning.

    It happened at about 8:30 a.m. near 75th Avenue and Indian School Road.

    According to police, 27-year-old Miguel Carrasco-Garcia and another man were following each other in their cars.

    The men pulled into the neighborhood, got out of their cars and started arguing.

    Investigators said the second man pulled out a gun and shot Carrasco-Garcia in the hip and leg.

    "I looked out the window and this guy shoots another guy," said neighbor Marissa Rodriguez. "It was really scary."

    He's in a Valley hosptial listed in stable condition.

    Another bullet hit a passing car being driven by Carmen Lopez.

    "It is really scary," said Lopez. "I'm just glad I'm OK."

    The shooter fled the scene. Police are looking for the driver of a White Grand Marquis or Lincoln

    Police say Carrasco-Garcia was holding a hammer during the argument, but aren't sure if he threatened the other man with it.

    If anyone has information about the suspect can call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS/480-testIGO.

    ----------------------------
    Another description of the incident said an uninvolved vehicle was hit by the shooter; fortunately, no other injuries reported.

    Utterly stupid... too much testosterone and machismo to blame.

    Maybe he thought he'd just nail 'em?

    When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail.

    (Or is it a 'martillo' and a 'clavo'? Pare, tengo un martillo y un I' m no asustado utilizarlo! Mierda santa, l tiene un arma !! )

    ...looks like he's the one that got hammered!
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    I wonder if the pistol was a tack driver too?
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.
