A Lancaster man admitted Monday to firing shots inside a city McDonald’s last summer, prompting others in the restaurant to duck for cover.
William Flores-Sandoval pleaded guilty in Lancaster County Court to a felony firearms violation and 9 counts of reckless endangerment, regarding the individuals who were in close proximity when shots were fired.
Lancaster County Judge Margaret Miller, who accepted the guilty plea, will order sentence in a few months, following a background check, according to Assistant District Attorney Mark Fetterman.
No one was struck inside the McDonald’s at 210 West King Street on Aug. 7, 2015, when Flores-Sandoval opened fire on two males who were leaving the restaurant.
Flores-Sandoval and the two males were in a physical altercation prior to the shots.
City police found several bullet markings on the building and interviewed witnesses to the incident. Several shell casings were recovered.
Officers also viewed surveillance images from the restaurant’s cameras and released a pair of images, depicting the shooter, to the public. Flores-Sandoval was identified as the shooter.
He doesn’t have a license to carry a firearm.
Lancaster city police Detective Tom Ginder filed charges.
