A man has been accused of shooting and killing a fast food employee in Florida, United States, after his girlfriend’s order took too long.
According to WKMG, a woman, who was upset that her Burger King order took too long called her boyfriend to come to the restaurant to deal with one of the employees.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to the reported shooting at Burger King on the 7000 block of E. Colonial Drive at about 7.30pm on Saturday.
The office said when deputies arrived, they found Desmond A. Joshua, 22, suffering from a gunshot wound in the parking lot.
He was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Authorities recovered surveillance video showing Joshua in a physical altercation with a man, who had him in a headlock, police affidavit discloses.
Witnesses told police that the woman, who was in line was mad about the delay, so she got out of her vehicle and shouted that she was going to have “her man” come to the restaurant.
An employee refunded her $40 for the meal and asked her to leave, reports say.
But the woman left the fast food and returned in a white truck with 37-year-old Kelvis Rodriguez-Tormes, who demanded that Joshua fights him, deputies said.
A witness intervened to stop the fight when Rodriguez-Tormes put Joshua in a headlock and started choking him, the affidavit also said.
Deputies say after a witness pulled Rodriguez-Tormes off Joshua, he went to his truck and got a gun.
The suspect then told Joshua, “You got two seconds before I shoot you.”
Rodriguez-Tormes then reportedly shot and killed Joshua, before driving off in the white truck.
WKMG added that Joshua had just started working at the fast food chain a few days earlier.
The suspect has been charged with first-degree murder with a firearm, destruction of evidence, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to arrest records.
