The 15-year-old boy and a 19-year-old Lancaster man were walking on Glenraven Road about 9:45 p.m. on Dec. 26 when a car drove by, made a U-turn and came back, deputies said.
A passenger got out of the car and fired three rounds from a small-caliber handgun, deputies said.
Guzman was identified as one of the car's occupants and arrested more than an hour later.
Deputies said the shooting followed an argument between the boy's companion and the companion's ex-girlfriend.
Investigators said the 15-year-old and the 19-year-old had walked past the home of the older teen's ex-girlfriend as she talked with three men in a compact car parked in her driveway.
Investigators said two of the men in the car were arguing over whose baby the 19-year-old's former girlfriend was carrying.
After the 19-year-old and the ex-girlfriend argued, deputies said the teens continued walking up Glenraven and that the compact car pulled out of the driveway and followed them.
After the shooting, the two ran, climbing though back yards along Glenraven. At the older one's home, they discovered that the 15-year-old had been shot in the leg.
Deputies located the car and Guzman at his home in the 44700 block of Foxton Avenue.
