McDonald’s employee shot after fight with customer

UPDATE: IMPD released a statement Friday just before 11:30 a.m. that they’ve arrested a 17-year-old boy for his involvement in the shooting. He’s been arrested for attempted robbery, battery, and carrying a handgun against the law. Police have not released the name of the boy due to him being underage, but they say this could change if he is charged as an adult.
