Man Enraged By Price of Burrito Fires Shots at Taco Bell Employee, Police

SAN ANTONIO, TX – A Taco Bell customer recently fired a BB gun at an employee when he found out that the seven burritos he ordered were more expensive than he expected. He later fired shots from an assault rifle at police and barricaded himself in a hotel room.

Doubly interesting is the fact that this man ordered seven (7) fucking burritos.

Upon the first shots from the BB gun, employees and customers hit the floor. When the man ran out of the Taco Bell and put an assault rifle and handgun on the roof of his car, the store manager locked the doors and called the police.

The man then headed to a hotel room, where he barricaded himself after firing shots at the police. He was apprehended after police fired tear gas into his room.

The Taco Bell store had been running a promotion that offered Beefy Crunch burritos for 99 cents. Unknown to the suspect at the time, the promotion had just ended and the price of the burritos had risen to $1.49.

The man will be charged with three counts of attempted capital murder. TC mark

    Shooting with a BB gun is not attempted murder.

    Those burritos are horrific. The spicy Fritos clearly get mushy and ruin any potential “crunch factor”.

    You know, I feel the guy. Just having one of those days where nothing seems to go right. After getting chewed out by the boss, you decide on the only thing that can improve your spirits: seven taco bell burritos. Exactly seven. Off the 79 cents menu. And then, as a final insult to your injured self, you find out the burritos were in fact moved to the 89 CENTS menu?!
    This is the breaking point, my friends. Time slows. Words become muffled as if spoken through water. The next thing you know, you're waking up in the dumpster behind Chuck E. Cheese's to the sound of police sirens in the distance. You're wearing an ill-fitting prom dress that's heavily soiled with blood. It's not yours…
    Come on, who hasn't been there?
