A Florida man was arrested by deputies after two concealed carry permit holders kept him from escaping by holding him at gunpoint after he allegedly shot at two women.

Police in Florida say that Lee David Wilkerson, 38, was standing outside the Bingo Paradise bingo hall in Pensacola, Florida on Wednesday when two females attempted to enter and an argument ensued, according to a Facebook post from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office.

Wilkerson allegedly retrieved a firearm from his side and struck one of the females in the head with it before shooting in their direction as they attempted to run away.
