Angry Customer Shoots Taco Bell Employee Because They're Closed

So, you roll into Taco Bell at 3:30 am. They’re closed. Sure, you’re upset, but do you need to shoot the person working there? One guy in Miami thinks so, and he’s apparently still at large after shooting a Taco Bell employee in the leg simply because the restaurant wasn’t open.

From Fox Miami:

The gunman, who remains at large, ambushed several employees as they stepped out of the Taco Bell at 630 NE 79th St. at closing time, at about 3:30 a.m., Tuesday.

One of the employees took a bullet in the leg. It’s still in there and she has to use crutches to get around.

“I couldn’t believe it because I’m never rude to any of my customers, I never get any complaints,” she told FOX. “The most I get is compliments and something like that, but when it happened I’m like, oh, my God, I couldn’t believe it.”

Police say the gunfire was prompted because the restaurant was closed and the man wanted food:

[The employee] took the bullet, according to Miami Police, because some guy was upset the store had closed and he could not buy any food.

She feels lucky to be alive and hopes to see luck run out for her assailant. “For you to do what you did, it was very unnecessary,” Bouie said, addressing the shooter, “and I have a child. I didn’t do anything or say anything wrong to you, and even if I did, that doesn’t give you reason to shoot or to fire your gun at anybody, and I hope you get caught for what you did.”

They’re still looking for the guy, so if you know anything: call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
