Woman fired gun at McDonald's drive-through because she didn’t get bacon on her sandwich

A woman accused of firing a gun early on Monday morning at a Grand Rapids, Michigan McDonald’s restaurant, allegedly because she didn’t get bacon on her sandwich, now faces three criminal charges. Shaneka Monique Torres, 29, was arraigned in Grand Rapids District Court on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, discharge of a firearm in or at a building and felony firearms.

Torres and another woman placed an order at the drive-through window at the business on Sunday. The workers got the order wrong, police said, and the customers were told their next meal would be free. So the women returned to the restaurant’s drive-through window at around 3am on Monday and ordered again. Torres was the passenger in the vehicle, and was flirting with the employee in the first drive-through window, police said.

She left that person her phone number in hopes he would call her later. Torres and the other woman drove up to the second drive-through window to get their order, which was wrong, police said. Torres pulled out a gun, reached across the driver and fired one shot through the closed car window and drive-through window, police said. The bullet went through the other side of the building, but did not hit anybody.

Workers didn’t realize what had happened. They thought a coffee pot had exploded. The customers drove away and went to Torres’ house, where she was dropped off. Police tracked down the shooter at her home because she left her cellphone number with the drive-through worker. Police arrested Torres at her home. She is currently being held at the Kent County Correctional Facility on a $50,000 cash surety bond.
