One person was killed and two others injured in a shooting at a Church's Chicken in San Diego after the suspected gunman reportedly attempted to pay for food using a counterfeit bill.
According to NBC San Diego, the shooting occurred at a Church's located on Picador and Del Sol boulevards in the Otay Mesa community Wednesday night. Prior to the shooting, the suspect—described by the San Diego Police Department as a "thin man in his 30s"—got into an argument with the employees about the alleged attempted use of a counterfeit $100 bill.
There have been conflicting reports, however, about the bill. Other reports state the argument was centered on a store policy which prevented the acceptance of $100 bills outright.
At some point, the man is said to have left the restaurant, only to return "minutes later" and open fire "from across the counter." Three employees were struck, with the suspect ultimately fleeing the scene.
The employee who died from injuries sustained during the shooting, per the San Diego Union-Tribune, has been identified as 28-year-old Maribel Ibañez.
At the time of this writing, no arrests in connection with the fatal shooting have been reported.
