While receiving treatment at TriStar Skyline Medical Center, the victim told officers he was sitting outside the business, when Farmer bumped into him and called him a name.

There was an argument and the victim stated Farmer walked to the back of the building, returned and fired at least one shot, hitting the victim in the leg.

A coworker told police that prior to the shooting, Farmer walked in and said he was not working. He went outside and the coworker reported hearing a gunshot.

Police said Farmer had previous felony convictions for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated robbery in Davidson County. As a result, he was charged with being a felon in possession of a handgun.

Bond for Farmer was set at $100,000.
