‘No Bacon’ Order at McDonald’s Leads to Drive-Thru Shooting
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (Feb. 10, 2014) – A Kent County woman is facing a maximum seven years behind bars after a shooting at a McDonald’s drive-thru early Monday morning.
Shaneka Torres, 29, is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, unlawful discharge of a weapon and felony firearms. Right now she’s being held on a $50,000 bond. Another court appearance is scheduled Feb. 21.
Around 3:00 a.m., authorities say Torres was a passenger in a vehicle that went through the drive-thru at the McDonald’s near 28th Street and Madison, placing an order for a meal with bacon.
Investigators tell FOX17 Torres received her first order and it had no bacon, so the Torres later returned to the McDonald’s to get it fixed.
Staff at the McDonald’s say they replaced the order free of charge, but apparently there was no bacon on the second order, and Torres is accused of firing a shot through the drive-thru window.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
Detectives said they were able to find Torres and the driver of the vehicle after the pair had left a number with McDonald’s workers to discuss the mishap more at a later date, prior to the shooting.
The driver involved was questioned and released by authorities.
Torres also had a bench warrant for not paying fines connected to an earlier offense for driving on a suspended license.
