YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) - We are learning more information about the shooting that left one man wounded and deputies searching for a suspect.

Yuma County Sheriff's Office deputies say 23-year-old Yonathan Beltran, A.K.A. "Pishon," is their main suspect in the shooting that happened early Monday morning.

Witneses tell investigators that Beltran got in a verbal argument with the victim at a home in the 8200 block of South Coconino Lane, which quickly escalated into a fight.

Witnesses say Beltran was knocked to the ground, pulled out a gun, stood up and began shooting the victim.

Beltran is wanted for attempted murder and should be considered armed and dangerous.

 He is described to be about 5'6" tall and weighs 120 pounds.

 Anyone with information on Beltran's whereabouts is urged to call the Yuma County Sheriff's Office at (928) 783-4427 or 78-CRIME to remain anonymous.
