New details have surfaced on a shooting that took place at a McDonald's drive-thru on Monday night in Evansville.

The Evansville Police Department says that several witnesses at the scene of the shooting told them the shooting victim was in the drive-thru when he started arguing with someone in a different vehicle.

After an exchange of words between the occupants of the two vehicles, police say the suspect vehicle drove away and the man in the drive-thru continued to wait for his food. A short time later, that man was shot while still in his car.
