The suspect, Antares Heller Garcia, 19, of Spring Hill, had just opened fire on the closing manager at the Burger King on Port Royal Road in Spring Hill.

"The guy that did the shooting jumped over the counter and came to the dish washer and started doing the shooting there," Sophia Sarlo, an employee said.

NewsChannel 5 was told Garcia had recently been fired from his job and was also dating a current employee. Her voice can be heard on the 911 call.  

"I know he's had some issues at work because he's my boyfriend and I don't know. He just came in and saw someone, he's never acted like that before," she said. 

After opening fire inside the Burger King Garcia led officers on a short pursuit on foot and was apprehended on Reserve Blvd a short distance away.

"That guy was just not in his right mind," Sarlo said. 

According to witnesses, the manager was shot multiple times in the arm and chest. He was flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he's recovering. "I really really hope he feels better. I really feel bad that something like that would happen," said Sarlo. 

We learned a doctor who was in the drive through at the time of the shooting also helped until emergency crews arrived.

Garcia is in custody at the Maury County Jail, he faces multiple charges including attempted murder.
