Video After The Jump
SHELBYVILLE, Kentucky -- (New York Post) This was fowl gunplay.
An irate KFC customer reportedly shot out a drive-thru window at a Kentucky outpost after she was not given a fork and napkin.
The wild incident unfolded at the fast-food chain in Shelbyville, Ky., on Monday afternoon, CBS affiliate WLKY reported.
Witnesses told the news outlet that a woman opened fire through the take-out window when she did not receive a fork and napkin.
Shelbyville resident Steve Cook posted an image to Facebook Monday showing the shattered drive-thru window.
“This happen[ed] at KFC early today some [woman] got [mad] over paper towels and a fork and shot a 9 mm at workers in Shelbyville,” Cook captioned the photo, which was shared on the social media site more than 11,000 times.
Charlene Witt, the manager of a Subway restaurant across from the KFC, told WLKY: “I just can’t even think about what was going through their head to pull out a gun and shoot a window. It’s scary.”
Witt, who said she was inside the Subway when the shooting happened, said, “I had a regular customer come in and say, ‘Did you hear about what just happened at KFC?’ I was, like, ‘No.’ He was, like, ‘Someone just shot the window out over here.’”
A spokesperson for KFC told WLKY in a statement, “First and foremost we are grateful that no one was injured. We are working with local authorities as they investigate the incident.”
The business closed early on Monday following the shooting.
