LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The man accused of shooting two people at a McDonald’s in Lynchburg on Jan. 3 is in custody.
Sherwin Overstreet was arrested in Roanoke this afternoon and charged with two counts of malicious wounding and two counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to Lynchburg Police.
Authorities say that they responded to a malicious wounding call at 6:21 p.m. from the McDonald’s at 2135 Wards Road. Upon the officers’ arrival, they determined that there was a fight between an employee and a customer at the drive-through window.
According to the police, the customer drove away from the window, parked his car, went inside the McDonald’s, and continued the fight. Officers say that the customer then shot two employees and drove away in a 2005 red Mazda SUV with a Virginia license plate of URS-7076.
Authorities say that two McDonald’s employees suffered non-life threatening wounds from the shooting and are expected to recover.
