An East County man was shot in the leg by his landlord Thursday in a fight over utility bills, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO) confirmed.
Michael McGinley, 54, was arrested and booked on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon following the shooting around 10:20 p.m. on Valle De Paz Road in unincorporated El Cajon.
The victim was McGinley's tenant, Glenn Reese, who lived on the property but in a different home, deputies said.
Reese went to McGinley's home because he thought his electricity had been shut off because of a payment disagreement.
When Reese arrived, he told deputies McGinley pointed a 10mm gun at him and fired twice, deputies said.
Heartland Fire officials treated Reese for one gunshot wound to the upper leg near the thigh. The 49-year-old was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital.
The second bullet missed Reese, deputies said.
