He then fired at least one round through the window , the channel reported.

Sgt. Gary Knight said: "A man was complaining about not getting enough sauce, or not getting any taco sauce and was very upset."

He then pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired through the window, and then entered the building, but left before police arrived, Knight said. So far nobody has been arrested.

Employees ran to the back of the store and locked themselves in a bathroom, Knight said.

"He apparently left. It's unclear exactly what he did while he was in there as they were hiding," he said.No employees were hurt, and the Taco Bell was left with a shattered window that has since been boarded up.Advertisement

"Any time you've got people inside of a business and some person decides, for whatever reason, to fire bullets into that business, [it] makes for a very dangerous situation and we're extremely fortunate that nobody was hurt," Knight said.
