Two Prescott Men Arrested after Altercation Leads to Shooting and Intentional Ramming of Vehicles 

On Thursday, July 25, 2019 at approximately 12:31 A.M. Prescott Police Officers responded to the parking lot of the Yavapai Regional Medical Center upon the report of an assault in progress, as well as the report of shots being fired.

Through the course of the investigation, Officers were able to determine that 36 year old Prescott resident, Shane R. Beck, and 21 year old Prescott resident, Harrison J. Stephens, along with another female, were involved in a verbal altercation while at Beck’s residence in the 800 block of Sunset Ave. At some point during this altercation Stephens and the female drove away in her motor home. Beck followed the two driving a 2011 Kia SUV. Beck pursued Stephens through the neighborhood and pulled up next to them at the intersection of Fair St. and Miller Valley Road at which time Stephens fired one round from his handgun at Beck. The round missed Beck as well as the vehicle he was driving.

The pursuit continued north on Miller Valley Rd and into the parking lot of Yavapai Regional Medical Center where Beck utilized his vehicle to repeatedly ram the motor home. Eventually Beck’s vehicle became disabled and Stephens, along with his female companion, left the scene to a nearby location where they phoned police. 

Beck was arrested by responding officers and later booked into the Yavapai County Jail on felony charges of Aggravated Assault, Endangerment and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Stephens was also arrested and booked into the Yavapai County Jail on the Felony Charge of Drive by Shooting. No charges have been filed against the involved female at this time and nobody was injured during the course of these events.
