NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Authorities caught and arrested a man accused of shooting his wife in the parking lot of a local Sam's Club.

Johnny Vinson, 63, is accused of shooting Angela Pack, 46, around 1:50 p.m. Saturday at the business located on Antioch Pike in south Nashville.

Police reported Pack, who is currently going through a divorce from Vinson, parked her car in the Sam's parking lot and went inside to shop.

Vinson arrived at the store and confronted her when she returned to her vehicle.  

A Sam's employee attempted to intervene when Vinson began physically assaulting Pack, but Vinson pointed a gun and directed that he back away.

He continued to assault Pack and opened fire as she fell to the ground.  She sustained four gunshot wounds to her torso and hand.

Pack was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Vinson fled the scene in his maroon sedan, but was located Sunday morning, hiding in his car on Willow Bough in Hermitage.

He was charged with attempted criminal homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon and vandalism.

Vinson is being held in the Metro Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond.

At the time of the shooting, Vinson was free on $20,000 bond stemming from a December 14 arrest for violating an order of protection and assaulting Pack.

In that case, Vinson allegedly showed up at Pack's workplace, stared her down and pointed a stun gun at her before fleeing.  He is due in court January 22 for the incident.

Vinson was also convicted of domestic assault against Pack in 2011, and received a two-year sentence in 2010 after being convicted of felony aggravated assault for striking her car with pick-up truck.
