Armed Dad Shoots, Kills Fast Food Shooter

The masked gunman who died after opening fire inside a Birmingham, Alabama, McDonald’s has now been identified. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office identified the man has Antonio Demond Sanders. He was 24 and lived in Birmingham. He had only recently completed The Dannon Project, a program aimed at reducing recidivism.

The shooting happened about 10:45 p.m. at the Lomb Avenue restaurant. Sanders was taken to Princeton Baptist Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 11:16 p.m. A father who was eating inside the restaurant with his two teen sons was injured by Sander’s gunfire as was his 17-year-old son. He returned fire and killed Sanders. Sgt. Bryan Shelton said the restaurant was closing for the night and the manager was unlocking the door to let out the father and his sons. As the door was opened, a masked man, now identified as Sanders,  burst inside and opened fire. The exiting customer was able to return fire, striking Sanders.

Authorities have not identified the father or his son. They have not released any information, except to say the investigation is ongoing. Video surveillance is among the evidence they are reviewing. They will present all of their evidence to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office for review, but don’t expect any charges to be filed.   [Source:]
