According to reports from the area, a driver was seen chasing and shooting at another vehicle, which then crashed into the Hardee’s restaurant next to Steiner’s Shoney’s establishment as the driver was trying to escape the shots. According to local police, the individual who fired the shots then got out to search for the victim before firing more gunshots outside and leaving the scene.

“It was pretty, pretty freaky…but ya know, it’s a once in a lifetime thing. It’s a pretty mellow place around here.”
