Man Arrested In Pasco Shooting

Port Richey, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Pasco deputies have arrested 55 year-old Victor Guzman for shooting another man in a dispute over cash.

Investigators say it happened at a house at 9138 Pegasus Drive as 32 year-old Kevin Newkirk arrived to pick up money owed to him.  Deputies say Newkirk was confronted by Guzman.  During an arguement, detectives say Guzman pulled out a gun and shot Newkirk in the stomach.

Newkirk ran from the house, but Guzman fired at least five more shots at the man.  All those shots missed. Newkirk is hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Guzman was arrested later at his home on Fox lane.  Guzman is charged with attempted murder. Deputies also found the Colt pistol used in the shooting.
