Woman Shoots Out KFC Window Over Fork And Napkin

Kentucky is known for being the birthplace of world-famous Kentucky Fried Chicken.  And as such, the state residents take their KFC seriously—however, one customer took it to a whole new level.

The Shelbyville based Kentucky State Police are investigating reports of a customer allegedly shooting out the window of a KFC drive-thru on Monday.

Eyewitnesses to the alleged incident recount to WLKY, the local news outlet, that the shooting was sparked after what appeared to be a woman upset that she did not receive a fork and a napkin with her order.  As such, the police closed the store on Monday following the incident, pending further investigation.

A photo of the window, shattered from the gunshot, was posted to the social media site Facebook yesterday, by Steve Cook, a Shelbyville resident.  In the caption that accompanied the post, Cook stated:

“This happen at KFC early today some [woman]got [mad]over paper towels and a fork and shot a 9mm at workers in Shelbyville today.”

With many of the readers of the post, which reportedly measure in the hundreds, came comments of both shock and skepticism at the fact that it was claimed a gun was actually involved.

Although dispatchers for Shelby County have officially confirmed that law enforcement was called to the KFC after having received a report of a possible shooting on Monday, they have not offered any further clarification.

Shelbyville Police Department Sgt Kelly Cable made a statement to Newsweek, offering:

“At approximately 11:50 am, officers were dispatched to KFC on a “shots-fired” call.  According to employees, a customer (adult African American female) in the drive-thru lane became agitated and verbally abusive.”

He went on the add that after having obtained her food and drink order, the drive-thru window was struck by a gunshot coming from inside the vehicle.  Reports further indicated that no one was reported as injured in the incident.
