Just after 7:30 a.m., police were called to the CVS Pharmacy on the 100 block of Lexington Circle after reports of at least one person shot.
Police said the victim was an employee, who was not identified. No one else was injured in the shooting.
"We do have one victim and one in custody. The two parties that were involved were known to each other. This was not random. There is no further concern to the public. This was a domestic-related incident," said Peachtree City Police Lt. Chris Hyatt.
Investigators combed over the suspect's blue Dodge Challenger that appeared to have just pulled up to the store and was not in a parking spot.
"As far as other employees involved, it was completely isolated to the two parties that involved that occurred outside the business establishment. All other employees are obviously shaken to the events that occurred, but everyone is completely safe at this time," Lt. Hyatt.
