TAMPA — Deputies have arrested a man in connection with a shooting Tuesday at a New Tampa home that left a man critically injured, records show.

Peter Ballard Pinto Guedes, 28, of 10330 Goldenbrook Way, was arrested at noon Tuesday and charged with attempted first degree murder, according to Hillsborough County Jail records. An arrest report was not immediately available Wednesday, but the arrest came about 3 1/2 hours after deputies responded to a shooting call at the same address.

A 28-year-old man called 911 about 8:30 a.m. to report he'd shot someone in the home, Hillsborough sheriff's Major Frank Losat said a news conference later Tuesday morning. Deputies arrived to find a 64-year-old man with gunshot wounds.

The victim was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, then by helicopter to another hospital and was listed in critical condition, Losat said. The shooter was taken into custody and was cooperating with detectives.

Losat said the two men began to argue, then the suspect retrieved a gun inside the house and opened fire. A witness who is related to the shooter saw some of the altercation. None of their names were released.

The victim had been renting the home for about seven months, Losat told investigators.

Property records show the home is owned by a Marlene T. Guedes.

Peter Guedes was being held without bail Wednesday.
