LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A fight between co-workers at an auto body shop in Las Vegas resulted in both with gunshot wounds and one of them charged with attempted murder.

Las Vegas Metro police released an arrest report describing an incident Monday that resulted in charges against 47-year-old Kevin Montalvo.

Police, in the report, learned Montalvo had gotten into a dispute with a co-worker at the S&M Body Shop in the 5100 block of Dean Martin Drive.

According to a witness in the report, Montalvo went to the business and confronted victim Bryan Jackson, who was on the job at the time. The witness said, in the report, Montalvo was at odds with Jackson about his level of work.

The confrontation turned physical, according to the witness in the report. Police, though, learned through surveillance video Jackson appeared to have initiated the physicality.

After both men were separated, Montalvo, as the witness said in the report, exits the building with Jackson following a couple of minutes later.

That was when, according to the witness, gunshots were fired. The witness told police he saw Montalvo with a gun aimed at Jackson, who was charging at the suspect.

A struggle ensued, the witness described in the report, between Montalvo and Jackson. The witness told police he was able to seize the gun out of Montalvo's hands, allowing both he and Jackson to flee to the hospital in the victim's car, the report said.

According to Metro in the report, Jackson sustained four upper body gunshot wounds, which required emergency surgery.

After police were called to the business, officers, in the report, met Montalvo, who had a gun magazine in his hand at the time. Montalvo, in the report, was transported to University Medical Center when it appeared he was shot in the chest.

Both men were treated at UMC in stable condition, police said.

Detectives, in the report, found an additional magazine and ammunition in Montalvo's truck, which, according to the witness, was where the suspect retrieved his weapon. Police also found a black handgun in Jackson's vehicle, which, the witness said in the report, belonged to the suspect.

Police also found two bullet impacts on the auto body shop, according to the report.

Police determined there was enough evidence to book Montalvo in absentia on charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, battery with substantial bodily harm and discharging a firearm at or into an occupied structure.
