One man is under arrest and another is being sought after a shootout in Greenville County early Thursday night.

Lieutenant Tim Ridgeway of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened around 7:03 p.m. at 3311 Whitehorse Road.

According to Ridgeway two men became involved at an argument at a home. One of the men left the home and noticed the other had gone back inside the home and retrieved a shotgun. The two men began firing shots at each other outside a auto parts store.

When deputies arrived, they received a description of the suspects and learned that one had left the scene with a woman in a red Ford Explorer. Deputies soon located the vehicle and pulled it over. During the course of the traffic stop, a gun was found and the unidentified man admitted to being involved in the shooting.

Deputies placed the man under arrest for unlawful possession of a handgun and went back to the home to try and find the other suspect. A woman at the home told deputies that the man inside the home had fled the scene earlier.

The identities of the second shooting suspect was not immediately available.
