When a sheriff's deputy arrived on Thomas Boulevard late Tuesday night to investigate a shooting, Anthony Boglino, according to a report, spontaneously volunteered this information: "I shot him." Haigh Frank Kopoain, Boglino's friend and neighbor, had a bullet in his stomach and was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. Boglino, 62, said the incident started as an argument in the yard, the report says. He was charged with attempted murder and was being held in the Land O'Lakes jail Wednesday without bail. Kopoain, 36, was listed in critical condition.
