The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. outside of the restaurant, WXII reports.

Police said officers were called to the restaurant regarding a domestic dispute.

Upon their arrival, officers encountered 22-year-old Kendicia Melanie Clarke, of Greensboro, who was one of the people involved in the dispute.
