A Georgia man was arrested after going to the workplace of his ex-girlfriend and shooting at her several times, striking her once in the head.

According to Suwannee Police, 30-year-old Nathanieo Pinkins went to Quality Technologies on Wednesday morning. Pinkins found his ex-girlfriend in her car when he pulled out a gun and began firing, reported Fox 5 Atlanta.

Pinkins shot at the woman's car multiple times while she was in it, hitting her in the head, police said.

"Pinkins approached her vehicle, shot multiple times in her vehicle striking her one time. She managed to back up and get away from the scene, go to another location and call for help," said Suwanee Police Captain Cass Mooney.

The victim was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for her injury. Witnesses at Quality Technologies told police Pinkins and the victim were estranged.

"They have at least one child together.  They are no longer a couple so they were going through some sort of domestic issues,” police said.

Suwanee Police said their agency had no prior interaction with the two.

"No we had no prior knowledge of any of this going on. In speaking with family members we didn't get any indication at that point that anything else had happened," said Captain Mooney.

After the shooting, detectives suspected Pinkins might head Mississippi but he was found about 30 miles away in a shopping center parking lot.

He appeared to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and was listed in stable condition as of early Wednesday evening. He is now in police custody.
