Police have arrested a woman suspected of a shooting at a South Fulton Walmart parking lot.

According to the South Fulton Police Department, the incident began with an argument around 9:45 Tuesday morning at a Walmart on the 6100 block of Old National Highway.

Police say the suspect shot another woman she was arguing with.

Officers shut the store down while they searched for the shooter, who is now in custody without incident.

"After the shooting, the female ran inside of the store. We actually had an off-duty officer working here. And responding officers got here in a timely manner where they were able to take the female suspect into custody. We recovered the firearm in the store as well," a spokesperson for the South Fulton Police Department says.

The store remained shut down for a few hours due to the investigation.

Medics took the victim to a nearby hospital, where she is in serious condition.  

Police have not released the identities of the suspect or the victim.
