Shooting At Burger King Drive-Thru

A man apparently wanted it his way at a Burger King drive-thru in Rocky Mount, so much that police say he shot at a vehicle, barely missing the two people inside.

It happened Monday afternoon around 1:30 p.m. at the Burger King on Sutters Creek Boulevard.

Police say the gunman walked around the victim's vehicle which was in the drive-thru, and banged on the window with the butt of a gun. Police say the man then shot into the vehicle. The victim drove off and called police.

The suspect vehicle is a burgundy 4-door Toyota Tundra with possibly a blue igloo cooler or blue tub in the bed of the truck. Police released surveillance photos of the truck in hopes someone would recognize the vehicle.

    Chris, what was wrong with my retort. Was it the fact that I brought attention to the mud pie in Chris' pants.

    This is one of the reasons why I try to avoid drive thru's I would rather take my chances inside a resturant then to be caught in the drive thru and boxed in with no where to go.

    Let me ask if no one else will. You can see details like whats in the back of the truck and the color of the cooler and the fact that he walked around the other vehicle but not the color of his skin? The police want our help but leave out this detail?

    Neo - Try to use correct spelling when attempting to belittle someone. The "DESCRIPTION" was probably not available at the time of the press release. If it take's a very VAGUE description in order for you to put "2 and 2" together, then you likely do not know the suspect in this case. Anyway, I am sure that the "police" are not trying to hide a persons description from us, sometimes people give varying accounts of what a person looks like and have a hard time recalling even simple details when looking down the barrel of a pistol. I am almost certain all they saw was "GUN", and probably could offer little help to the public or the police in giving a description.

    Man, Rocky Mount and Oak City in Martin County must be competing for who can have the most crime in 2009. And they probably don't want to release a description because it's the same suspect description as it always is in these situations.

    The photo is blurry but in combination with the discription of the vehicle it is helpful. A discription of the suspect would be nice. Surely someone saw him if he walked around the car and then shot into it. Why no discription of the suspect? It may help us citizens put 2 and 2 together on whether or not we know this person. Why no discription? WITN, you cannot use the excuse that a discription of the perp would not be helpful in this case. The police are looking for somebody, but they don't want us to know what they look like......??? Tolerance has become the height of stupidity!!!!
