CREATED Jan 12, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The man accused of shooting his estranged wife in the parking lot of a Sam's Club has been arrested.

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said 63-year-old Johnny Vinson was arrested Sunday just after 8 a.m. The suspect was found hiding in the passenger seat of a parked car on Willow Bough Lane in Hermitage.

Vinson has been charged with Attempted Murder Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Gun Possession, Order of Protection Violation, and Vandalism.

Vinson has been accused of shooting 46-year-old Angel Pack in the parking lot of a Sam's Club in south Nashville. The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Saturday.

Investigators said Vinson confronted Pack as she walked out of the store and began physically assaulting her. A store employee attempted to intervene in the struggle but was stopped when Vinson threatened him with a gun.

Police said the suspect shot Pack multiple times before fleeing the scene. The couple was in the final stages of divorce at the time of the incident.

At the time of the shooting, Vinson was free on $20,000 bond from an arrest from December 14 on charges of aggravated assault against Pack and order of protection violation.

Officials said Vinson was convicted of domestic assault against Pack in 2011. He was also convicted of felony aggravated assault and received a two-year sentence for twice striking Pack's car with his pickup truck.

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

He was held in lieu of $500,000 bond.
