When officers got to the scene, Blair was unarmed and waiting for them in the driveway, court documents said.

The victims were hospitalized in stable condition. One of them required surgery.

Blair allegedly set up a camera to record the shooting and said he originally planned to shoot his parents on Mother's Day.

"Defendant showed remorse for the fact that his parents will live," court documents read. "Defendant knew [his] actions [were] wrong, but still attempted to shoot and kill his parents."

Blair remains jailed on a $750,000 bond. His trial is set for September.

"We can never truly know what causes a son to attempt to end the lives of the people who raised him, but we can certainly agree it is a heinous act," Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell said. "Our job now is to hold him accountable."
