The woman Green was seen arguing with identified him as the suspect, according to records. She told police she had been at a family gathering with Green when she told him she was ready to go home. The woman said Green wanted to take her back to his place instead of taking her home. At some point, Green pulled out a gun, according to the woman.

Fearing for her safety, the woman jumped out of his car and walked into the grocery store and hid in the women's restroom before the shooting incident took place.

Green was arrested and charged and is scheduled to go before a judge on Tuesday.
