Disgruntled Taco Bell customer shoots up drive-thru window, employee's car

Taco Bell: Customer was upset over order mix-up

Milwaukee Police (MPD) are looking for a man who fired shots at a Milwaukee Taco Bell early Monday morning after the disgruntled customer was upset over a mix-up in his order, according to restaurant management. 

The shooting occurred around 12:20 a.m. on the 5700 block of W. Fond du Lac Avenue, said MPD Sgt. Timothy Gaurke.

“A customer fired a gun into the drive through window and into an employee’s car,” Sgt. Gaurke said.

Sgt. Gaurke said the investigation is ongoing and Milwaukee Police are looking for the suspect.

Taco Bell management said that the man was upset that employees forgot to add sour cream to his order. The customer apparently called the restaurant after discovering the error. The manager instructed the customer to come back to the restaurant the next day to get a free meal, as the restaurant had already closed.

But, nearly immediately, the customer then returned to the restaurant where he shot at the bullet-proof drive thru-window and the employee’s car in the parking lot, restaurant officials said.
