A man picked up his order at a Taco Bell drive-thru just after 1:00 a.m. on New Year's Eve. He quickly returned to the restaurant, yelling that employees did not include taco sauce packets with his order.

The man was so mad about it that he pulled out a gun and opened fire. Employees locked themselves inside a bathroom.

At least two bullets struck the exterior of the building. Nobody was injured and cops are still trying to find the shooter. [The Smoking Gun]
