2 shot, 1 killed at McDonald’s in Hickory

A woman was killed and a man was injured in a shooting at a McDonald’s restaurant in Hickory Wednesday.

The shooting happened just before 6 p.m. at the McDonald’s on Hwy 321. Officials at the scene told WBTV there was reportedly some type of domestic argument in the parking lot.

Deputies said a woman was shot and killed and a man was shot and wounded by a third man. No names have been released and officials have not commented on the male victim’s condition.

The shooter reportedly left the scene in a Nissan Xterra, but investigators said they believed he switched vehicles later. He was taken into custody in Caldwell County several hours later. Police have not revealed any details about his arrest or charges.

Officials said all three involved knew one another and that the shooting was not a random act of violence.
