Shooting Suspect Captured

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Fort Walton Beach resident with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in connection with the shooting of another man Monday night.

Twenty-five-year-old Pedro Alberto Guzman-Soto of 5 Mooney Road, #G3, was taken into custody Thursday evening in the parking lot of an area business.

Investigators say Guzman-Soto shot the victim, 29-year-old Reynaldo Perez (aka Jose Alberto Guerrero-Garcia) multiple times with a .22 caliber handgun at Perez’s residence, 814 Tanager Drive, Lot 16.

Perez remains in critical condition at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

It’s believed he was shot after getting caught in the middle of a dispute over money between Guzman-Soto and another man.
