Two Brothers Arrested Following Domestic Dispute

Two Brothers Arrested Following Domestic Dispute

A local neighborhood in the city of Phoenix was crudely awakened to the sound of gunfire. Police say that the gunfire occurred during a domestic violence dispute which broke out during early morning hours on Sunday.

At around 4:30 AM, an officer on patrol saw a suspicious man leaving the desert area onto 35th Avenue. The officer then spoke with in other man who informed her that two brothers were fighting at a nearby home.

Allegedly, one of the brothers inside of the residence had a gun and fired numerous rounds at the officer. It was reported that several bullets hit the officer's SUV, but she was able to reverse the vehicle and avoid further gunfire.

Later, police were able to identify the shooter as 27-year-old Jesse Smith. He was arrested and booked on charges of attempted second-degree murder, four counts of aggravated assault, misconduct involving body armor and firing at a residential structure. His brother, 22-year-old Joshua Smith, was arrested for hindering prosecution.
