Associated Press

A former McDonald’s employee who was rejected after reapplying for his job has been arrested and accused of gunning down three employees, killing one.

Jody Tyrone Gordon, 24, was arrested Friday on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

The gunman walked into the restaurant Thursday, fired at three employees and laughed, witnesses said. Gordon had lost his job in February 1995 after being sentenced for armed robbery.
