OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) -- Multiple employees were injured in a shooting at a McDonald’s in Oklahoma City over the restaurant’s COVID-19 dining room policy.
Police say it started around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when a woman entered the McDonald’s near S.W. 89th and Penn expecting to be able to sit down and eat. Because of COVID-19, employees told the woman that McDonald’s dining rooms are still closed.
The suspect refused to leave and a physical altercation ensued between the suspect and an employee. The suspect exited the store briefly, but returned with a handgun. Police say she fired approximately three rounds in the restaurant.

Four employees were injured, and three went to the hospital. One employee was hit in the arm, a second was hit with shrapnel in the neck/shoulder and a third employee was hit with shrapnel in the side. Two of the employees are 16 years old, according to police.
Officials tell KFOR original reports indicated there were two suspects, however, it was later determined there was only one suspect: 32-year-old Gloricia Woody. She was located a few blocks south of the McDonald’s and taken into custody without incident.
Woody is in custody on charges of assault and battery, the New York Times reports.
