LARGO – Pinellas County Sheriff’s detectives arrested a Largo man Monday night for attempted murder after he shot his daughter’s fiancée in the neck following a verbal dispute.

According to investigators, Matthew Burrows, 46, and his fiancée Patricia Groves, 34, both of Largo became involved in a verbal dispute regarding Burrows’ drinking about 6:53 p.m. June 23. At some point, William Chalmers, Jr. 55, told them to stop, and subsequently became engaged in a verbal exchange with Burrows.

During the exchange, Chalmers made threatening remarks to Burrows and pulled out a gun. Burrows retreated into a bedroom of the mobile home and shut the door. Chalmers followed him to just outside the room.

In an effort to calm things down, Groves stood in front of the door between Chalmers and Burrows, who was inside the room.

Chalmers then fired a shot through the door, striking Burrows in the neck, investigators said. Burrows was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives talked to everyone involved before Chalmers was arrested for attempted murder. He was transported and booked into the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.
