Venezuelan police arrest American man on murder, weapons charges

Venezuelan police have arrested an American on attempted murder and weapons charges.

Venezuela's Supreme Court said Todd Michael Leininger was arrested after a raid on his house in the Western border state of Tachira.

Police arrested Leininger after he apparently injured another man with a gun. A number of firearms were found at the house but authorities provided no other details except to say that two women were also arrested as part of the investigation.
