Navajo police: 2 men shot with 1 bullet

PINON, AZ (AP) -

Navajo police say an Arizona man is facing charges after he shot a father and a son with one bullet.

The Gallup Independent reports that Richard Cooke was arrested for the death of Elvin Tachine and his son, Leveil Natoni, who were shot last month.

A criminal complaint says Elvin Tachine and Cooke started fighting after Tachine's goats wandered onto Cooke's property. The complaint says Tachine threw Cooke to the ground and walked off.

Authorities say Cooke then shot 1 of the men twice. The second shot went through the first victim's chest and also struck the second victim, who was standing behind the first victim, in the chest.

It was unclear if the single shot is what killed the first victim or if he died from both shots.

Cooke's attorney did not respond to messages left Wednesday.
