The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at 134 Payne Springs Road, according to a detective with the Dickson Police Department. Laura Waynick, 37, and her husband, Roger Waynick, 37, went to the home of her children's father, Matthew Jones, 37, to pick up their two kids, a 10-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy.
Jones confronted Roger regarding an accusation from one of the kids that he had smacked them in the head. After Roger confirmed that he did so, Jones then started beating him through the window.
Roger pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, hitting Jones in the back left side. The shooting took place in front of the children, according to police.
Jones was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt Medical Center. The extent of his injuries are unknown at this time.

Man pleads guilty to Memphis officer's murder
May 21, 2013 22:22 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A former death row inmate is set to be released from prison after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of a Memphis police officer.
Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said Tuesday that she has accepted Timothy McKinney's guilty plea.
McKinney was convicted of first-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Officer Don Williams. The officer was killed outside a comedy club in December 1997.
McKinney appealed and won a new trial, which ended with a deadlocked jury. A third trial earlier this year also ended in a hung jury.
The Commercial Appeal reports that McKinney was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Since he's already served more than 15 years -- including 11 on death row -- McKinney will be released this week.
Williams' family opposed the settlement.
