TAMPA – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrested two Tampa residents in connection with the stabbing and shooting of a man.

The victim was transported to Tampa General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Pedro David Sanchez Baez, 41, of Tampa, was charged with one count each of Attempted First Degree Murder with a Firearm and Shooting at or Within a Vehicle.

Carrington Faith Thornton, 21, also of Tampa, was charged with one count of Attempted Second Degree Murder with a Weapon.

Deputies were called to a home in the 5000 block of Williams Road about 3 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 17) for a call about a domestic-related stabbing. Detectives said they learned that Thornton had stabbed the victim during an argument.

Sanchez Baez, who lives nearby, drove to the home and, from his car, shot at the victim who was standing outside the residence. Sanchez Baez fled the scene, but was located and arrested at Puritan Road and 56th Street in Tampa.

“Our deputies didn’t miss a beat and tracked down both of these criminals who violently attacked a man,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “We are grateful the victim survived and no one else was injured. Both suspects will be held accountable for their cruel actions. I also want to encourage anyone who is a victim of domestic violence to reach out for help. The Spring of Tampa Bay can be reached at (813) 247-SAFE.”

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
