At the scene police spoke with an employee for the popular food chain who says they were held at gunpoint.
The employee told police that they were expediting food to the suspects vehicle and shortly after repeating the order back and asking for payment is when the suspect pulled out a gun. The suspect then demanded the employee give him all the money he had in his current possession to which the employee told the suspect he had none. The only exception to carrying money for most Sonic carhops is just a four-barrel money changer.
