A TEXAS man has been arrested after opening fire at a Wendy’s restaurant following an altercation over a drive-through meal, police say.
Frisco Police said Christian Ellis, 19, of Glenn Heights, was arrested Aug. 19 after authorities were able to identify him as the shooter based on his vehicle information and video evidence.
Ellis was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, for the Aug. 17 shooting, authorities said in a news release.
Frisco Police said the agency received a series of calls around 8 p.m. reporting gunfire at a Wendy’s restaurant on Eldorado Parkway.
When officers arrived at the fast-food restaurant, they said they learned that a customer at the drive-thru was unhappy with their order.
Authorities said Ellis then entered the store and began arguing with staff.
After the altercation, he returned to his car, where he was given a pistol and shot in the front of the site before fleeing, FPD said.
His bail was set at $100,000. Frisco Police said his bail was posted and he was released.
Frisco Police said two other people were in the vehicle with Ellis and they were also arrested and charged.
Little Elm resident Tyran McLeod, 19, and Shaquita Glaspie, 33, have been charged with failing to report a crime, which is an offense punishable by up to a year in prison.
McLeod’s $5,000 bond was posted and he was also released. Glaspie’s bail was also set at $5,000 and she was sent to Collin County Jail.
The agency reported that no one was hit by the gunshots and the restaurant did not suffer much damage.
The Frisco Police Department is asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact the Frisco Police Department.
