Police bodycam footage reveals the bloody aftermath of a shooting at a McDonald's in Oklahoma, where three teenage workers were left wounded and a coworker suffered a head injury after fighting the the suspected shooter. 
The 32-year-old suspect had opened fire after being told the dining room was closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, police said.

Injuries to the four employees were non-life-threatening. Three employees with gunshot wounds were taken to a local hospital, police said. 

Police Captain Larry Withrow said the suspect had entered the restaurant at around 6:22pm and was told by workers the dining area had been closed for safety reasons due to the coronavirus. 
Woody was asked to leave but refused, and police said a physical altercation then ensued between the suspect and an employee.
‘The suspect was forced out of the restaurant by employees. She re-entered the restaurant with a handgun and fired approximately three rounds in the restaurant,’ Withrow said.

One employee was shot in the arm, one suffered a shrapnel wound in the shoulder area and another employee was struck in the side by shrapnel.
The employee who fought with Woody suffered a head injury during the altercation, police said. The specific nature of the injury was not immediately clear. 
Two of the employees are 16 years old and the others are 18, Withrow said. He did not know which employees were wounded by the gunfire.
Police initially said two employees were struck by gunfire. Officers initially thought they were looking for two suspects but realized only one woman was involved.

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski told ABC’s Good Morning America that the employees were expected to make a full recovery.
In a separate statement, McDonald’s said: ‘The safety and security of our employees and customers is our top priority. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved, and the good news is that we can report the employees who sustained injuries are expected to make a full recovery.
‘This is a heinous crime on our restaurant employees who were trying to support public health efforts. We are fully cooperating with law enforcement as they continue to investigate this matter.’
The shooting comes amid tensions over restrictions because of efforts to curb the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how people are responding to ongoing efforts to reopen portions of the United States shut down by the virus.
‘What you’re seeing in this situation is really what you’re seeing in a variety of situations across the country, which is this tension about opening and people’s concern about it,’ he said. ‘But there’s absolutely no excuse for violence, particularly gun violence, so I’m just happy that our people are going to be OK.’
Tensions have escalated into violence elsewhere in the country.
This week, a woman, her adult son and husband were charged in last week’s fatal shooting of a security guard who refused to let her daughter enter a Family Dollar in Flint, Michigan, because she wasn’t wearing a face mask to protect against transmission of the coronavirus.
