Girl, 16, working at McDonald’s is shot dead through drive-through window as man is arrested11/03/2020
A TEENAGER has been shot dead in an apparently random attack at a McDonald's restaurant.
Kylee Leniz, 16, was working the drive-through window at the Idaho Street site in Elko, Nevada last night when 24-year-old Justin Michael Mullis allegedly shot her.
Kylee was rushed to Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital but couldn't be saved, reports Fox13.
The Elko Police department said Mullis had since been taken into custody.
They added the crime appeared to be "random" and as yet did not think there was a connection between Mullis and Kylee.
Mullis was interviewed by cops after being transported to the police station by an acquaintance, and charged with "Open Murder", the department said.
He was found following an extensive search by Elko Police who circulated CCTV images of the suspect on Facebook and urged the public to come forward with information.
Following the charge they said in a Facebook statement: "The Elko Police Department would like to thank the community for all of the tips that came in during the course of this investigation.”
Local McDonald's spokesman Chris Kassity said: "It is with a heavy heart that we lost one of our Elko employees and are deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred last night.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the employee during this deeply difficult time.
"We are fully cooperating with local law enforcement as they continue to investigate this tragedy."
