Armed father kills masked gunman at McDonald's (VIDEOS)

An incident that started when a masked man opened fire in an Alabama fast food restaurant ended with one dead and two injured.

The McDonald’s on Lomb Avenue in Birmingham was the scene of the shooting late Sunday night that left a subject, Antonio Demond Sanders, 24, dead and the man who shot him, an armed diner who was leaving the restaurant with his two sons, hospitalized.

“I just see crime as wrong period, but to try to protect your son, I can totally understand that,” Tyson told WIAT.
