Tuscaloosa Police Respond to Shots Fired in Dairy Queen Drive-Thru
Tuscaloosa police responded to multiple shots fired in a Dairy Queen drive-thru Sunday, striking a vehicle and injuring one person.
Stephanie Taylor, a spokesperson for TPD, said officers were called to the Dairy Queen on Southview Lane at 1:13 p.m. Sunday on a report of two customers being disruptive inside the restaurant.
Witnesses told police that two women were causing a disturbance and were asked to leave. One witness was on the phone with 911 dispatchers as the women exited the restaurant and walked over to a vehicle in the parking lot.
A man sitting in the car soon exited and began firing shots into the air, striking the exterior of the restaurant once.
Another man in the drive-thru exited his vehicle and fired a gun towards the first shooter, striking an occupied car. The occupant of the vehicle suffered minor injuries that did not require medical treatment.
The investigation is now being followed up by the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit. No one has been charged at this time.
