Man tries entering wrong Scottsdale apt., gets shot

Police are investigating a shooting outside a woman's Scottsdale apartment overnight.

Officers say the shooting happened on Saturday morning near Hayden and Camelback Road at the Scottsdale Shadows Apartments.

Police say a man was staying with a resident at the apartment complex, and returned after drinking some alcohol. The man tried to enter what he thought was the unit where he was staying.

The man tried to open the door, even though the key would not work. The woman inside the apartment was home alone, heard the commotion, and told the man to go away.

The man continued to enter the apartment and the woman, believing he was a prowler, fired one shot through the door, striking him in the leg.

The man was rushed to the hospital and was treated and released.
