The Jennings Police Department is searching for a man who allegedly threatened to shoot a KFC employee and then fled from the area.
According to police, the vehicle was in the drive-thru line at KFC when one of the four occupants, identified as Terrance Munday, got upset because he had to wait for his food. Munday then allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot the employee.
As police were en route to the restaurant, the vehicle left the drive-thru and went across the street to a gas station. Officers were telling the occupants to show their hands, when Munday reached down to the floorboard and then opened the door and ran into a nearby wooded area.
During a search of the vehicle, police discovered an AR-15, two handguns, and masks in the backseat. A handgun was also located, on the front passenger seat floorboard where Munday had been sitting. That firearm contained obliterated serial numbers and it was determined to be stolen. Police also learned that Munday had an outstanding warrant for aggravated battery.
Police searched the woods and fields for four hours, using drones, K-9s, and night vision, but were unable to locate Munday there. Officials learned that Munday had contacted his brother, who lives in Bunkie, to come pick him up. They were able to conduct a traffic stop on Munday's brother, who had Munday's location on his phone.
Officers searched all areas, but ultimately were unable to locate Munday.
The three other occupants of the vehicle were detained and transported to the Jennings Police Department, where they were later released on summonses.
The firearms were seized for further investigation.
According to KALB in Alexandria, Munday has an outstanding warrant in Avoyelles Parish for aggravated burglary in 2019.
Munday is described by KALB as being 5 feet, 10 inches tall, with brown eyes and black hair, weighing 160 pounds.
Anyone with information on this incident or the whereabouts of Munday should contact the Jennings Police Department at 337-821-5513 or the Bunkie Police Department at 318-346-2664.
