According to police reports, the incident occurred at 8:15 p.m. at the McDonald’s restaurant located at 1918 Jefferson St.

When officers got on the scene, they found the victim — a 44-year-old Jefferson City female and McDonald’s employee — had been shot once.

A few minutes after officers arrived at the restaurant, 911 dispatchers put out a call about the suspect, a 47-year-old Jefferson City male. He was taken into custody in the area of U.S. 54 and Christy Drive, shortly after fleeing the shooting scene.

The victim was taken to Capital Region Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.

Names of the victim and the suspect were not released pending notification of relatives, but police did confirm the two were known to one another.
