The irate customer fired several shots at staff members

A Burger King customer got so frustrated waiting for her order that she pulled out a gun and opened fire.

The woman was in the queue for her drive-thru meal at a Memphis branch of the restaurant when she grew increasingly furious at how long it was taking, according to police.

Surveillance footage shows the irate customer getting out of her car and marching over to the fast-food joint’s open window to argue with a member of staff.

She then went back to her vehicle, picked up a black handgun, leaned through the window and fired several shots at the workers inside.

In one image, released by police on Friday, the woman can be seen clasping the firearm with both hands and aiming inside the building.

Memphis Police are now seeking to identify the suspect and her male companion who was sat in her grey sedan at the time.
