Rocker shot in downtown Phoenix

Cris Kirkwood, former bass player for the Meat Puppets, an influential Phoenix band that became a national act in the 1980s and '90s, was shot Friday after an altercation with a security guard at the downtown Phoenix post office.


Kirkwood, 43, was taken in critical condition to Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center and whisked into surgery for an abdominal wound.


According to witnesses, Kirkwood quarreled over a parking space shortly before 5 p.m. in front of the post office at Central Avenue and Fillmore Street.


Kirkwood was apparently backing into the parking space on Central when Jenny Hom, 32, of Phoenix, attempted to pull into it from behind.


Hom honked her horn, then both drivers pulled into a parking lot.

so is Jenny the guard or what?


also, if he was backing into a space then the space is fully his, you gotta prep the sort of thing ... sounds like she just tried to play the opportunist like a bitch.
