NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A former Sonic employee was charged with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon after he fired shots at a car at the restaurant, according to an arrest report.
On July 30 around 1:50 p.m., officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department were called to a Sonic at 136 Long Hollow Pike. When officers arrived on the scene, several witnesses said they heard gunshots and saw people running.
Police found six 9-mm shell casings in the parking lot near stall 18.
Police looked at surveillance video and saw Cedric Gordon, an employee at the restaurant, leaving through the “employee-only door” of the building, the report said. Later, Gordon allegedly fired a black handgun at a car next to other customers at nearby stalls ordering food, according to the report.
Gordon then ran toward the back of Jets Pizza as the car drove away. Gordon never returned to work, according to the report.
