Florida Burger King employee Shateasha Hicks shoots customer who threw mayo at her


A Burger King employee in Florida allegedly shot and killed a customer after throwing mayonnaise in her face, police and local reports said.

Shateasha Hicks, 30, was arrested Thursday and charged with shooting in public after the Miami Gardens fast food incident.

Police said Hicks fired at a man after an altercation at the drive-thru window.

A relative of Hicks told NBC 6 that the customer she shot sprayed or threw mayonnaise in her face.

According to witnesses, the customer drove away and parked in the Burger King parking lot.

Hicks then allegedly walked over to her car, grabbed a gun, and fired five shots at the person’s vehicle as they drove away, according to an arrest report obtained by the media.

She got into her car and fled the scene, but was arrested after police found her car about a mile from her home, the report said.

A gun was reportedly found on the floor of Hicks’ car, and investigators found five bullet casings in a Burger King parking lot.

Hicks walked out of the Miami-Dade County jail on Friday night after receiving a $1,000 bond.

It was not immediately clear if the customer, who has not been traced by authorities, was injured in the shooting.

Hicks’ aunt claims her niece is defending herself.

“She’s protecting herself. I don’t blame her. Others might, but I won’t,” she told Local10.

A witness who identified himself as Kevin told the media he was buying a burger at the time of the shooting – and saw the victim “grimacing” at Hicks.

“He was looking through the car window, grimacing at her on the road, and that’s when he parked here and it made her very angry,” he said.

A Burger King spokesman called the incident “unacceptable.”

“We are appalled to learn of the incident at this location. This unacceptable behaviour is inconsistent with our safety and security brand values,” the spokesperson said. “Our franchisees are working with local authorities. As this is still an ongoing investigation, we cannot share further details at this time.”
