ST. CHARLES, MO ( -- One person was shot and the suspected gunman was taken into custody Tuesday after an incident in a St. Charles Target parking lot.

According to authorities, the altercation began when an Amazon delivery driver reportedly parked in a handicapped spot while meeting a fellow Amazon driver.

The suspected gunman was upset and the two began to argue. The argument turned physical, and that's when a shot was fired, striking the victim in the back.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and is in critical condition. The suspected shooter remained on scene and was taken into custody shortly after.
