HERMITAGE, TN (WSMV) -

An argument over a girl appears to the motive behind an overnight shooting in Hermitage that injured one man. 

The woman's ex-boyfriend called her new boyfriend and was threatening to beat him up, according to police.

The ex-boyfriend then reportedly showed up to the new boyfriend's apartment at Cherry Creek in Hermitage.

He allegedly kicked in the back door and shot the new boyfriend in upper leg. 

Police said the ex-boyfriend then took off in a green Yukon and refused to stop when officers tried to pull him over. 

Moments later, another officer spotted the SUV on Interstate 40 and called in a helicopter to help when the suspect got onto Interstate 65.

The suspect got off the interstate in Goodlettsville. He and another person in the SUV were arrested. 

It is unknown how the other person in the SUV plays into this situation.

Police said there were several people inside the apartment when the victim was shot. No one else was injured.

Investigators are hoping the witnesses will help them piece together what happened.
