Attacker Not “Lovin’ It” As Driver Shoots In Self-Defense At McDonald’s

posted on December 9, 2016

Evidently road rage can extend to the drive-thru lane, as a man learned when he was forced to shoot an attacker at a Florida McDonald’s. 

Investigators told Miami News 7 that the incident started on Monday when Victor Hugo Saavedra honked his horn at 21-year-old Sergio Hernandez and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Vanessa Puente, as the couple were talking to an employee at the drive-thru window. Puente charged the car and began striking the driver’s window. 

When Saavedra got out, Puente began punching him and was joined by Hernandez, who began hitting him in the back of the head. Saavedra then drew his concealed 9 mm and fired one round, hitting Hernandez in the pelvis and halting the attack. 

Saavedra, who has a concealed-carry permit, was not charged because the shooting was ruled an act of self-defense. Hernandez, who suffered a minor injury from the gunshot wound, was charged with battery, as was Puente. Puente received an additional charge of witness tampering for knocking Saavedra’s cell phone away as he called 911.
