Trucker shot at KFC restaurant over wrong order, cops say


Memphis police are on the hunt for a truck driver who they say opened fire at a fast food restaurant earlier this month.

In an October 13 news release, the Memphis Police Department asked for public help in locating a truck driver wanted on aggravated assault charges.

The charges stem from an October 10 shooting incident at a KFC restaurant located at 6262 Winchester in Memphis, Tennessee.

From Memphis police:

A male driving a Gray Freightliner Semi pulled into the drive-thru, placed his order, received it, and pulled off. The male later returned to the business after discovering that his order was wrong. 

The male pulled back into the KFC parking lot and approached the window, demanding his refund. Once the cashier returned the money for the incorrect order, the male pulled off and fired shots into the business. The bullets shattered glass and penetrated through several walls. No employees were injured.

Police say that the truck driver fled the scene after the shooting.

Investigators describe the suspect as a black male, dark complexion, 6’0, wearing a blue shirt, black pants, and yellow tennis shoes at the time of the shooting.

No arrests have been made and the shooting remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH or http://www.crimestopmem.org. A cash reward of up to $1000 may be available for information leading to an arrest.
