The manager and a security guard escorted him out, but that didn’t seem to please the patron.
“Eventually, the male subject was heard saying that he ‘had something’ for the employees as he exited the business,” Brookhaven police spokesman Maj. Brandon Gurley said.
The man came back to the restaurant with what was later found to be a toy gun, Gurley said.
But before the patron could act, an employee grabbed his own gun, confronted the man as he opened the front door and told him not to continue, police said.
“The employee fired several rounds at the armed person causing (him) to retreat and leave the scene in a white truck,” Gurley said.
