Wednesday's fatal shooting at a business complex in Phoenix may take investigators across state lines to Santa Maria.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson with the Phoenix Police Department confirmed to NewsChannel 3 that 70-year-old Arthur Harmon shot and killed 48-year-old Steve Singer after meeting over pending litigation.

An employee at KNXV, our sister station in Phoenix, tells NewsChannel 3 that Singer was the owner of call centers in Phoenix, Nevada and in Santa Maria, including Fusion Contact Center on Stowell Rd.

According to KNXV, the lawsuit involved furniture at the Santa Maria business.

Three people were shot. Singer died at the scene and another victim remains in critical condition.

Early Thursday morning, police in Mesa, Ariz. found Harmon dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.
