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.
