TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A Florida woman was arrested after she got into a shootout with deputies at a Florida McDonald’s Saturday night.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office released a statement saying that deputies were sent to the McDonald’s on South Orange Blossom Trail at 10:35 p.m. for an armed robbery call.
Deputies said Shandricka Sharmane Warren, 30, of Orlando made threats and fired a gun inside the restaurant, but the customers and employees managed to get out unharmed.
When three deputies arrived at the scene, Warren fired at them from inside the store, according to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office said the three deputies returned fire, but no one was hurt in the exchange.
The standoff lasted for over six hours as deputies tried to negotiate a surrender. At around 4:45 a.m. Sunday, Warren left the restaurant and was taken into custody.
At this time, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting and will report its evidence to the State Attorney’s Office. The sheriff’s office said it will begin its own internal investigation afterward.
The deputies in the incident were put on paid temporary administrative leave.
Warren was charged with burglary in a structure and assault with a firearm for the incident.
