Memphis police search for woman after Burger King drove through shooting during wait time

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A self-service order at a Tennessee fast food restaurant took a violent turn Tuesday.

An angry customer for how long he was taking his order at Burger King decided to shoot the restaurant and it was all caught on camera.

“Crime is getting worse everywhere now,” said Eddie House, a Burger King customer.

House is disappointed that a woman is accused of shooting his local Burger King, but said he is not surprised.

“More security, more police in the area would probably help,” he said.

Memphis police are now looking for the woman.

It all started when he got angry for how long he had been waiting at the self-service for his food, police said.

He got out of his car, walked to the drive-thru window and began arguing with an employee before starting to shoot, according to authorities.

“I hate being impatient,” said client Dewayne Wilson. “The children work there. So you know that’s what happens.”

Surveillance video shows employees running for cover, as well as a glimpse of the shooter’s car.

No one was injured, WHBQ reported.

“That’s a mess, I’m glad everyone’s okay,” Wilson added.

Memphis police are seeking the public’s help in finding the suspect. Anyone who recognizes the assailant or their car should call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-cash.
