Beatrice Gallop said her brother, Donald, was the shot employee. She told WJZ that he was recovering in the hospital and should be fine.
“I couldn’t believe it, that’s all, no body is prepared for a situation like this,” she said. “I’m grateful that I didn’t hear anything about his death.”
Employees said Donald was a driver for the store and was working inside when he argued with a cook. At one point, employees say gunshots rang out and Donald was shot.
