Karachi: A  McDonald’s fast-food restaurant manager was shot at and injured in Pakistan's Karachi city on Sunday.

The incident happened following a heated argument in the early hours of the day.

In a statement, Darakhshan police said that 32-year-old Imran Ali was shot and injured at McDonald’s Seaview due to the firing of unknown suspects for unknown reasons. The statement added that he was moved to the hospital for medical attention, Dawn News reported.

Meanwhile, South Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Syed Asad Raza told Dawn News that the injured man was the restaurant manager and was shot in the foot.

The officer said that four suspects travelling in a SUV arrived at the restaurant’s drive-thru with the intention of ordering food.

However, staff informed them that they were no longer serving customers and were having Sehri, Raza said.

The police official said that this enraged one of the suspects, who was reportedly “intoxicated”.

The SSP said the suspect took out a rifle and started firing.

He said that the glass doors of the restaurant, which were closed, shattered due to the firing.

He said that Ali, who had come outside to see what had happened, was shot in the foot during this time.

Meanwhile, police registered a first information report (FIR) on the victim’s complaint under Section 324 (attempted murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code at the Darakshan police station.
