Burger King customer mad about wait time opens fire in drive-thru, Tennessee cops say
Police in Tennessee are looking for a woman accused of shooting into a Burger King drive-thru window earlier this week.
Surveillance footage from a Burger King on Winchester Road in Memphis appears to show a woman with a black handgun firing into the drive-thru window on Tuesday, the Memphis Police Department said.
“Upon arriving on the scene, officers were advised that a female customer got angry regarding the wait time to be served at the drive-thru window,” police said.
The woman was reportedly in the passenger seat of a mid-sized, four-door gray sedan before she got out of the car and walked up to the window. According to law enforcement officials, that’s when a “verbal altercation ensued.”
“Video surveillance shows the suspect retrieve a black handgun from the vehicle, extend her upper body through the drive-thru window, and fire several shots at the Burger King workers,” police said.
The workers escaped through a back door and no one was hurt.
Police said the woman returned to her car and left. A man was reportedly driving.
Anyone with information about the woman’s identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-2274 to report an anonymous tip. Tips can also be reported online at crimestopmem.org or by using the mobile app when you search for “P3 Tips.”
