Milwaukee police responded to the Burger King Jan. 2 to investigate a reported shooting. Video footage gathered at the scene shows the shooter appeared to be firing toward an armed suspect at the drive-thru window who was trying to rob the cashier, a criminal complaint states. 

The store manager identified the employee to police as Ellis, and said he carries a gun while at work and had it the day prior to the shooting. After the shooting, Ellis allegedly asked her to hide the gun in the safe “because he was a felon and could not possess it.”
