Angry Burger King customer fires gun at drive-thru ‘because food took too long’

A woman who opened fire at a Burger King drive-thru after getting angry waiting for her food is being hunted by police in the US.

CCTV footage shows a suspect leaning over the window and allegedly firing rounds at staff members on March 30 in Memphis, Tennessee.

A police spokesman 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."

She was seen getting out of the front passenger seat and approaching the window before arguing with the workers there.

Memphis Police added: "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.

"The workers fled from the gunfire through the rear door of the business and were unharmed. The suspect was accompanied by a male who was the driver of the gray sedan."

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

Police are appealing for witnesses and a $1,000 reward has been put up by Crime Stoppers of Memphis and Shelby County, Inc. for information leading to her arrest.

Last month, shoppers took for cover inside mall bathrooms after hearing gunshots inside a St Louis mall.

Photos online show a crowd of people hiding near the stalls while police send multiple units down to the scene.

Reporters at the scene of West County Mall say there are multiple units with blue flashing lights outside, with one video revealing a large number of officers scrambled to the incident.

One shopper who took cover in the bathroom wrote on Twitter: "Currently hiding in a bathroom at the mall on a Friday night in St. Louis because shots were fired in the mall. GUN CONTROL NOW."

One witness claims to have seen the gunman, who shot from the second story and came down the escalator and kept shooting.

The man said he heard at least six gunshots and ran into the GAP store to call 911 and hide.

According to KSDK News reporter Casey Nolen, Mo Highway Patrol says the shooting started as an argument between two people, and one person is in custody.
