Arrest Made in Tire Shop Shooting

Kendall business owner was shot in the head after opening for business

Police have arrested a 21-year-old Miami man in connection with the murder of a Kendall tire shop owner last month.

Matthew Guzman sits in Miami-Dade jail on murder and robbery charges after he allegedly shot and killed Paul Barrow at Devonaire Service and Tire.

Police have not released any details about what led them to Guzman and what might have led to the shooting, but more information is expected to be available later today.

Barrow, 46, was attacked on Dec. 16, just after opening for business. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and his body was found by a customer later that morning.

Police claim Guzman confessed to shooting Barrow and killing a second man a month earlier.

Henry Ray, 64, was shot to death at his Miami home after getting into an argument with Guzman. Guzman shot the man several times before firing a final shot to Ray's head.

Guzman is being held without bond.
