Birmingham, Alabama — A father and one of his two sons are recovering after being shot during an attempted robbery at a Birmingham-area McDonald’s.
As the father and two sons were let out of the store by an employee at around 10:45 PM, a masked gunman opened fire, injuring the father and one of the sons.
But the father fired back, wounding and ultimately killing the masked gunman.
Here’s a local news report from the scene.
Here’s how it all went down according to a story on CBSNews.com:
“An father dining with his children at McDonald’s in Birmingham, Alabama, fatally shot a masked man who entered the fast food restaurant and opened fire, CBS affiliate WIAT reports.
Birmingham Police responded to the McDonald’s at around 10:45 p.m. Sunday after receiving reports that multiple people had been shot. When an employee opened the door to let a father and his two sons out of the restaurant, a masked man entered. The man then began shooting.
