(GoRealNewsNow.com) – A McDonald’s employee in North Carolina was arrested after a deadly shooting incident at the restaurant.
Police took 35-year-old Sam Antwan Ivey into custody on charges of second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon after shooting and killing 30-year-old Jacklyn Marie Reed from Johnson City, Tennessee.
The incident began with an argument between Reed and another woman at a bus stop near the McDonald’s shortly before 11 a.m.
The dispute intensified as Reed followed the other woman into the restaurant, leading the manager to intervene and separate them.
The situation further escalated when Reed encountered the manager and a male employee. During the altercation, the male employee, who had a concealed handgun, shot Reed.
Hendersonville police provided details of the incident: “During the disturbance, the victim reached out and touched the male restaurant employee, who shot the victim with a concealed handgun. The male employee fled the scene in his vehicle.”
A school resource officer from Edneyville Elementary School, located nearby, was aware of the McDonald’s shooting and knew the suspect had a child attending the school.
With this information, the officer arrested Ivey in the school’s parking lot without any issues. As a precaution, the school briefly went into lockdown in anticipation of Ivey’s arrival.
