RENO, NV - A Reno man is charged with battery with a deadly weapon after a shooting involving a crossbow.

Reno police say it happened in the 1400 block of East Taylor Street late Saturday night. Two men, neighbors, got into an argument after an apparent long-running dispute. Police say the argument turned physical with James Arena shooting the victim with a crossbow. The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was released from Renown the following day.

Police say Arena took off but was arrested soon after.
