A Florida Burger King worker has been arrested after police said she opened fire on a customer Thursday.
NBC Miami reports it happened at 4727 Northwest 167th St. in Miami Gardens.
Shateasha Monique Hicks, 30, was arrested. She faces a charge for discharging a firearm in public and was being held on a $1,000 bond Friday, Miami-Dade jail records showed.
A witness told police he saw Hicks get into a verbal dispute with a customer in the drive-thru.
A relative of Hicks’ stated that the customer threw mayonnaise in her face.
The witness said the customer then drove off and parked in the parking lot, Hicks left the restaurant, went to her car and grabbed a gun, then fired five shots toward the person’s car as they drove away.
“She started jumping up and down, ran outside and started shooting at him,” a witness named Kevin told WSVN. “He took off after that and then she got in her car and followed him.”
The car was abandoned but officers tracked it down and found a gun on the floorboard.
The customer was not found and his condition is unknown.
A Burger King spokesperson released the following statement:
“We are horrified to learn of the events that unfolded at this location. This unacceptable behavior does not align with our brand values of safety and security.”
