The Associated Press reports that three fast-food workers were found shot to death Wednesday, July 12 in an apparent robbery. The shootings apparently happened after Captain D’s closed at midnight.

Wednesday morning’s shootings took place in a Tennessee Captain D’s like this one.

The first body was found at about 2:30 a.m. in the driver’s seat of a car outside a BigK discount store behind the restaurant. Signs that the man worked at Captain D’s led police there, where the bodies of two more men were found in a backroom cooler.

The restaurant is 20 miles southeast of Nashville along Interstate 24, in a business district crowded with stores and restaurants. The community was shocked and frightened by the latest in a national trend of deadly quick-serve robberies.
