CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - A woman and her stepfather were shot outside of a South Carolina courthouse on Wednesday afternoon while she was seeking a paternity test, deputies told WBTV.

Sheriff Sam Parker said the incident happened at 12:30 p.m. at the courthouse on Main Street.

Deputies say 56-year-old Curtis Gorny pulled up to a car sitting outside the courthouse and fired shots at 21-year-old Olivia Weaver and 50-year-old Johnny Nolan inside the car.

According to Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker, Weaver was at the courthouse for a paternity test with Gorny.

She has a six-month-old child and has been in a dispute over who the father is.

Deputies chased Gorny for 15 miles, into Pageland, forcing the suspect to crash his vehicle. Gorny reportedly fired shots at deputies during the chase. No deputies were injured.

Court officials told WBTV that Gorny had a "No Contact" order which he signed.

The order stemmed from a domestic violence and larceny incident he had against Weaver and her family on September 5, 2012. The order was a condition of his bond.

Court records show that Gorny has two criminal domestic violence cases against him beginning in May of 2011.  One of those cases is pending.

Gorny is being held at the Chesterfield County Jail on charges of assault and battery with intent to kill.

Weaver was taken to McLeod Medical Center in Florence with non-life threatening injuries. Nolan, Weaver's stepfather, was taken to Cheraw also with non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation at the courthouse is ongoing.
