A woman is facing attempted murder charges for allegedly firing a gun through a Burger King drive-thru window. Investigators say the Tennessee woman was upset by the wait time at the fast-food restaurant.

On March 30, Memphis police were called to Burger King after shots were fired.

Employees told them a woman was upset about the wait time while being served at the drive-thru window.

She got out of the car, and surveillance video shows she is holding a black handgun as she leans through the window and fires several shots into the restaurant, according to a social media post by police.

Employees were able to escape through a back door and no one was injured.

Police tell local media they have arrested the woman responsible.

She is now facing two counts of attempted first-degree murder and a charge of using a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
