MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two people were shot and one is dead after a shooting at a McDonald's drive-thru Friday morning.

The shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. at the McDonald's on Winchester Road and Mill Branch Road.

Memphis Police Department said a car was in the drive-thru when another car drove by and started shooting.

A man and woman were inside the car and hit by the gunfire.

The man then ran to a nearby gas station for help. Witnesses said he was shot several times as he was running.

Both were taken to the hospital in critical condition. The woman later died from her injuries.

Witnesses say it all happened so fast.

“It’s a bad situation,” said customer Verdell Brown.

This is the 147th homicide of 2017, and so far, police haven't released a motive.

“I feel bad for the woman who got killed, and I feel bad for the man who is still in the hospital,” Brown said.

Customers said they were stunned to hear about the deadly shooting.

“I come here quite often and it's always been pretty safe,” said customer Teresa Burks.

Now, customers say they're being more careful and they want the suspects caught.

“I try to avoid going out at night and I really don't like going places I don't know,” Brown said.

MPD said the suspects were driving a gold, 4-door Infiniti. No arrests have been made.
