The wounded man was taken to Blake Medical Center with multiple gunshot wounds and remains in critical condition, the sheriff's office said Friday.

Witnesses told deputies that the victim - who the sheriff's office is not naming citing Florida's Marsy's Law - got into an argument 20-year old Jahmari Mays while inside an apartment. As they argued, Mays pulled a handgun and shot the victim several times, the sheriff's office said.

Mays was arrested Thursday night and charged with attempted murder. He is being held without bond at the Manatee County jail, according to jail records.
