Officers arrested 48-year-old Robert Jamison late Monday night outside a home near 10th and College.
He's accused of shooting Terry Thomas, who is expected to be OK.
Detectives say Jamison spotted Thomas talking to his girlfriend, and that's what led to the fight.
Lt. Sidney Allen said, "Of course there are two sides to every story and those detectives are going to try and figure out what those other elements are."
Police say Jamison is a felon and he was carrying a stolen gun, so he'll face charges for that crime too.
