Gunman Chases Down, Kills Man at Montgomery County McDonald's Drive-Thru

UPDATE: Norristown Police charged 22-year-old Jonathan Walker in the murder of Marquis Johnson.

A man running for his life was shot and killed in a Montgomery County McDonald’s drive-thru lane overnight.

The deadly incident played out late Tuesday night at the fast-food joint along W Main Street near U.S. Route 202 in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

A witness told NBC10 that someone chased another man on foot into the drive-thru lane of the eatery and fired at least 10 times.  The unidentified 24-year-old died between where you order and where you pick up your food. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, said the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.

Investigators didn’t immediately reveal details on the circumstances leading to the shooting. They asked anyone with information to call Norristown Police at 610-270-0977 or county detectives at 610-278-3368.

The McDonald's opened for business after police cleared the scene Wednesday morning.

"The security and safety of our customers and employees is always our top priority," said McDonald’s owner/operator Jonathan Chong in a statement. "We’d like to thank the local police department and our employees who responded swiftly and professionally. Given this is an ongoing police investigation, please contact the local Norristown police department for questions regarding the incident."
