Wichita police have arrested a 24-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman for the shooting incident at a west side McDonald's restaurant that led to a five-hour standoff at a home.
Someone threw a tire iron and another person fired a shotgun from a vehicle that tried to cut into a drive-through lane at a McDonalds at Kellogg and Dugan early Wednesday. No one was hurt, although a second vehicle was hit by the shotgun blast.
Lieutenant Doug Nolte said the vehicle that left the scene had a personalized license tag, and officers traced it to a home in the 2400 block of West Newell. Police surrounded the home and a SWAT team was called in.
Nolte said officers decided to request a search warrant, and the SWAT team moved in around 2:15 p.m. and took three people out of the home. He said nearby residents were told about the situation. They were given the option of staying in their home or leaving, but it was decided that a mandatory evacuation would not be necessary.
Nolte said a man and woman were arrested, and another man was questioned and released when it was determined that he was not involved in the McDonald's incident. Police recovered a tire iron at the McDonalds and a shotgun was taken from the home on Newell.
Police said the driver of the vehicle involved in the shooting incident was apparently upset because his drive-through order was wrong.
