Antioch police are searching for a man accused of shooting at a drive-thru windows at a McDonald's in Antioch Wednesday.

The shooting left behind smashed windows, and terrified witnesses.

According to authorities, the incident occurred at 11 a.m. on the 2000 block of Mahogany Way when a driver in the drive-through shot out three windows at the restaurant.

Some witnesses told ABC7 News they saw the man there last week angry over a relationship going sour. This time they said, he showed up in the drive-thru lane armed.

Police don't think this was a random act. "It's sad, because this is where all the little kids, I take my grandbabies here to play. This is where the kids play, like come on," Bewanna Flowers said.

Neighbors are disgusted, and frightened. It's Antioch's second shooting in two days.

Wilmesha Levi heard the gunshots while she was working across the street. "It sounded like he was really trying to get her," she said.

Police said he drove off in a 2000 white Chevrolet pickup.

The woman was unharmed, but police said a man in his 20s, not the intended victim, suffered minor gunshot wounds, but did not go to the hospital.

Police said he was an employee who was standing near the windows when the shots were fired.

"Thank the lord no babies or kids was in there, it's like who would be that irresponsible and that silly, that makes no sense," Flowers said.

Though police haven't released a name, people in the neighborhood have a pretty good idea who it is.

They said the intended victim, a woman in her 20s, is a manager at the McDonald's and the shooter may have been her ex-boyfriend who first came by last week.

"They were into an altercation and he I guess smashed the window a little bit, didn't do much damage," Levi said.

Now, several days later, they said he came back and this time, he opened fire.

"There's guys out there who's going to be upset, especially if the female is someone they really love. And I guess this was like a love scene over here, some fatal love," Levi said.

A spent shotgun shell was lying on the pavement, though witnesses heard something different. "I believe it was a pistol, it sounded more like a pistol," Levi said.

Police are interviewing witnesses, and they're assuring the public that the shooting was not random.
