A Hemet man was arrested last week on suspicion of attempted murder after he opened fire on a man who confronted him for urinating in the bushes outside an apartment complex, authorities said.

When the neighbor approached Charles Bourdon Jr., 21, to stop him who from urinating in the bushes, Bourdon pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired at him, said Lt. Eric Dickson of the Hemet Police Department.

When officers responded to the apartment complex, Bourdon fled and officers saw him throw a firearm into another set of bushes before being arrested, Dickson said.

Bourdon was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.  He is being held on $1-million bail.
