A Jack-in-the-Box employee in Texas opened fire on a drive-thru customer in March 2021, and now, video has been released showing the moment the incident escalated.
FOX 26 Houston reported that the incident happened at a Jack-in-the-Box near George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston on March 3, 2021.
That night, Florida resident Anthony Ramos picked up his pregnant wife and 6-year-old daughter from the airport.

The family ordered food from the drive-thru and were met at the window by restaurant worker Alloniea Ford.
When Ramos received his food, he asked for the missing curly fries, which were denied by Ford.

Ford left the video frame briefly and came back, arguing even more.
After about nine minutes, tensions escalated further when Ford left the window, took a firearm from her pocket and put it back.
One of Ford’s co-workers attempted to calm the situation, but Ford returns and argued with Ramos even more.

She then started throwing packets of ketchup at Ramos’s truck, and he retaliated by throwing some of the items he received back at her.
That’s when the other employee closed and locked the drive-thru window, until Ford unlocked and reopened it.
Ford grabbed the gun from her pocket, pointed it at Ramos and fired off multiple shots as he sped away.
None of the bullets struck the occupants of the vehicle or the vehicle itself.
Ford was ultimately convicted in court of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and her probation concluded in June.
