A Florida fast-food employee is dead after a man is accused of shooting and killing him after they took too long on his order.
A woman who was upset that her Burger King order took too long sent her boyfriend into the restaurant and he shot one of the employee's deputies responded to the reported shooting at the Burger King on 7000 block of E. Colonial Drive around 7:30 p.m. Saturday according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
When the police arrived, they found Desmond A. Joshua, 22, bleeding in the parking lot to a gunshot wound. He was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Witnesses told police the restaurant was busy that night and the drive-thru was backed up, which increased the wait time for orders. Authorities recovered surveillance video showing Joshua in a physical altercation with a man who had him in a headlock, according to the affidavit.

A man has just been accused of fatally shooting a Burger King worker in Orlando, Florida after his friend’s order took too long to complete.
The New York Post reported that Kelvis Rodriguez-Tormes, 37, has been arrested for allegedly shooting Desmond Joshua, 22, in the parking lot of the restaurant at around 7:30 PM on Saturday night.
“You got two seconds before I shoot you,” Rodriguez-Tormes told Joshua, according to witnesses, before he pulled the trigger. Joshua had only recently been hired at the restaurant.
Earlier in the evening, Rodriguez-Tormes had stormed to the Burger King after being asked to do so by a woman who made a scene over a long wait time at the drive-thru. This woman, whose name has not been identified, was refunded $40 and told to leave after she got out of her car and screamed she was going to get “her man” to come to the Burger King.
