An unidentified man is wanted by police in Louisiana after staff at a fast-food restaurant say he pulled out a gun in response to what he thought was a wrong order.
According to the New York Post, the suspect is described as a black male in his late teens to early 20s.
Witnesses compared his facial hair to the sideburns worn by rapper Rick Ross. Authorities believe there were four other occupants of his gray Nissan Altima at the time of the incident.
The vehicle reportedly displayed a temporary tag in its rear windshield. Witnesses believe it might have included the numbers 1784 at the beginning and a 1 at the end, according to a NOLA.com report.
The vehicle drove up to the drive-thru entrance of the McDonald’s located on South Carrollton Avenue at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, according to police reports. Shortly thereafter, the driver allegedly drove up to the window and told staff members that he was supposed to have received another food item.
After employees scanned his order and told him he had everything he ordered, they say he became upset, flashed a gun and sped away.
Police hope to identify the suspect and make an arrest on suspicion of aggravated assault with a firearm. They are calling on the public to help locate him.
