3 in custody after shootout in Burger King parking lot, police say

1 man taken to hospital for treatment of small laceration


Three people are in custody after a shootout Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of a Burger King in southwest Miami-Dade County.

Miami-Dade police Detective Argemis Colome said Daniel Rodriguez and Enrique Santana walked into the fast-food restaurant at 11595 SW 40th St. and began acting disorderly and being disrespectful to the staff.

A man, who asked not to be identified, said the men were angry about their order.

"The menu being messed up, or, like, their order being messed up," he told Local 10 News.

Colome said as Rodriguez and Santana walked out of the Burger King, they made disrespectful comments to Jorge Rodriguez, who was standing outside.

Daniel Rodriguez and Santana got into their car and pulled a gun on Jorge Rodriguez, who also got a gun from his car, Colome said.

As Daniel Rodriguez and Santana circled the parking lot, shots were fired, Colome said.

Jorge Rodriguez was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center to be treated for a small laceration on his back. He was treated and released.

Colome said all three men were taken into custody.
