BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Baton Rouge Police Department said a restaurant worker was injured after a shooting that began with a disagreement over an order on Wednesday, June 29.

According to BRPD, it happened at Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers on Millerville Greens Boulevard, which is off Millerville Road near I-12, around 9:45 p.m.

Investigators reported the victim suffered minor injuries.

Authorities said an argument between a customer and an employee began because the customer’s order was accidentally given away. Police added the pair reportedly agreed to meet outside, where things got physical. Another worker eventually broke up the fight, according to investigators.

Police said as the workers returned to the restaurant, multiple shots were fired, hitting one of them. The front of the store also sustained damage, they added.
