GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said a trip to pickup pizza ended in gunfire Saturday night in Greenville. 

The shooting happened at the Dominos on Anderson Road just before 8 p.m.

Lt. Chris Taylors from the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said the suspect, 71-year-old Leo Adams Jr., and his girlfriend got into an argument while driving in their car. 

Shortly after, the suspect stopped at Dominos to pick up a pizza and got into a dispute with the employees about the pizza, Taylors said. 

Deputies said employees asked the man to leave, but instead he retrieved a handgun from his vehicle and shot, striking his girlfriend in the hand. Deputies said the bullet ricocheted and hit an employee who was also in the parking lot in the head. The victims were not seriously injured.

Adams is being held on attempted murder, criminal domestic violence and possession of a weapon during a violent crime charges.

Adams reportedly left the scene after the bullet was fired, but deputies said they were able to arrest him about a mile down the road without incident.
