Argument over BBQ sauce leads to teenage Wendy’s employee being shot in head

An argument over barbecue sauce left a teenager in intensive care after being shot in the head at a Wendy’s drive-thru.

Now that teenager looks to be out of the woods and is recovering after the horrible ordeal.

Brian Durham Jr., 16, was rushed to a hospital on Jan. 13 after a dispute in which he was reportedly not involved escalated into gunfire, according to FOX 10 in Phoenix.

The teenage employee at Wendy’s in Phoenix was in critical condition after being shot in the head while working the drive-thru.

“The customer reportedly walked up to the drive-thru window, pulled out a handgun and fired into the drive-thru window hitting the victim working inside the store,” said Sgt. Vincent Cole of the Phoenix Police Department.

The shooter ran off after the incident, but police were able to apprehend him later. He was identified Theotis Polk, 27, according to FOX 10 in Phoenix.

Durham Jr.’s father, Brian Durham Sr., said the incident started when the customer complained the restaurant did not have barbecue sauce, FOX 10 reported.

“My son just stayed quiet and had the guy’s change in his hand,” Durham Sr. told the news outlet. “[He] just stayed quiet while the other two was in confrontation.”
