A Florida man was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Sunday for fatally shooting a Burger King employee over a delay with a drive-thru food order, officials said.

Kelvis Rodriguez, 37, was charged with first-degree murder with a firearm, destruction of evidence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Rodriguez shot 22-year-old Desmond Joshua, Jr. in his chest at a Burger King parking lot in Orlando on Saturday, according to a police report. Joshua was taken to AdventHealth East Orlando, where he was pronounced dead.

Chris Finazzo, Burger King’s president for North America, told USA TODAY in a statement that the company was “deeply saddened” over Joshua’s death.

“Our deepest condolences go out to Desmond’s family and friends during this difficult time,” Finazzo said.
