TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
A Taco Bell employee who police say shot at a co-worker in Tyler and then fled has turned himself in.
Guillermo Flores, Jr., who was reportedly involved in a dispute with a co-worker on Wednesday and who eventually was said to have shot at him in the parking lot of the Taco Bell on South Broadway, is now in custody. He is charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and is being held on $250,000 bond.
At 11:36 p.m. on June 4, officers responded to a co-branded Taco Bell/ Long John Silver's restaurant at 7425 South Broadway Avenue.
The two workers, Flores, Jr. and Joseph Gilliam, were separated after a verbal altercation that began inside. Officers said the two then moved outside, where punches were thrown, and a gun was drawn. Witnesses told officers Flores fired several rounds from a pistol toward Gilliam. The gunfire missed, hitting a side door. Shattered glass covered the ground outside a restaurant door. No one was injured by the gunfire. Flores fled the scene before police arrived.
