A man opened fire at a McDonald’s Drive Thru in a disagreement over change, police said.

The incident occurred at around 9 p.m. at the fast food outlet in Shields and Brawley avenues in Fresno, California.

Police say the man was at the drive thru when he pulled out a gun after an altercation over change.

The unnamed man then fired shots into the air before going on to a nearby liquor store where he also fired the gun with the bullet entering an apartment around half a mile away, local media reported.

The bullet hit a dresser inside the building and no-one was injured.

Police have now arrested a man who is being questioned about the incidents.

The man has not been named and at this stage it is unclear what charges he may face.

Newsweek has contacted police and is awaiting a response.

The shooting is part of a spate of violent incidents that have occurred at fast food restaurants during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two weeks ago, Newsweek reported that police were hunting a man who allegedly fired shots into a KFC drive-thru in Tennessee after being given the wrong food order.

Detectives said a man in a grey Freightliner semi-truck pulled up at the fast food outlet at 6262 Winchester, in Memphis, and placed an order at the drive-thru window on October 10.

They said he initially drove off after receiving the order but later returned to the window demanding a refund, saying he had been given the wrong food.

The cashier handed over the money and the man then pulled away before firing gunshots into the building, police said.

Although no-one was injured during the incident, police said the bullets shattered glass and damaged several walls.

And at the beginning of the month Newsweek reported that a mother has been seen on video ranting at McDonald’s staff because they forgot to give her children ketchup.

The woman was filmed as she launched a vicious tirade at staff working at a drive thru in Belgium.

During the clip, posted to Twitter, the woman goes up to the order hatch and starts shouting and pointing her finger demanding ketchup, or “sauce” as it is more commonly known in Europe.

Two people who were sitting in a car filmed the angry outburst which was seemingly sparked because staff had not included any ketchup with her takeaway meal.

During the tirade, the woman hurled insults at staff calling one man a “dirty son of a w****” and addressing another staff member as a “dirty w****,” reported local media.

The woman says: “Give me my sauce, I paid for it. My children do not eat fries without sauce.”
