    Philadelphia Police Arrest Delivery Driver Accused Of Shooting Teen Chick-Fil-A Employee Over Missing Milkshake – CBS Philly

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia police have arrested a 26-year-old man accused of shooting a teenage employee at a Northeast Philly Chick-fil-A on Monday night. Police believe an argument over a missing milkshake led to the shooting.

    “The driver of the delivery vehicle got in an argument because he believed he was supposed to receive more food for the delivery and that turned into an argument with several of the employees. And that escalated into a shooting,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

    Authorities were called to the restaurant on the 800 block of Adams Avenue in the city’s Lawncrest neighborhood around 8:30 p.m. for a shooting.

    Police say this particular Chick-fil-A fulfills online orders only and is not open to the public for ordering fast food. Employees told police the delivery driver came to the door and began arguing with several employees about the amount of food he received and the missing item, a milkshake. He then pulled out a gun and fired at the 17-year-old.

    Police say the 17-year-old boy was shot once in the left leg and is in stable condition. He is expected to survive. His wounds were said to be non-life-threatening.

    “Based on ballistic evidence we know one shot is fired from a large caliber semi-automatic weapon that spent shell casing is in the parking lot of the Chick-fil-A building,” Small said.

    Surveillance cameras helped police identify the suspects’ car and tag. They later found the car dumped on Torresdale Avenue.

    Police said Tuesday the suspect arrested is a 26-year-old man who was driving for DoorDash. Police have not identified the suspect’s identity.

    DoorDash said Tuesday it has “banned the perpetrator from our platform.”

    “We are horrified and appalled by this brazen act of violence and have banned the perpetrator from our platform. We are fully supporting law enforcement with their investigation and hope justice is served. We’ve reached out to the victim to offer our support, and our thoughts are with him and his family as he recovers,” DoorDash said in a statement.

    CBS3’s Joe Holden contributed to this report.
