MILWAUKEE – A 15 year old boy was shot inside McDonald's restaurant near 16th and Washington on Sunday, October 21st. The customer says there are armed security guards at the restaurant, but it is mixed reaction to how effective they are.
James Fairbanks says he eats at McDonald's once a week. His friend was outside and heard the shooter.
"Sometimes you have creepy people come in and do horrible things," said Fairbanks.
As a result, Fairbanks says there are always armed guards in the fast-food joint. He says it's mainly to act as a loitering deterrent.
"There is security here OK. There are no problems here." There have never been any problems here, "said Fairbanks.
The staff waited patiently until they were sent back by the police to ask questions. A security team and guard seemed to remain inside the building. Luis Quinoes says he stopped eating there because of it.
"You see a lot of security around with crew members," Quinoes said.
Quinoes says he never sees the guards doing anything, and he wondered what caused someone to shoot at a teenager.
"I have two children; daughter and son. I can not imagine what's happening to my child, "Quinoes said.
The Milwaukee police said the survey was underway. The youth shot is expected to be OK.
