ELKO, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Highway Patrol and police in Elko are investigating the fatal shooting of an employee at a McDonald’s restaurant just off Interstate 80.

Authorities say they’re looking for a person of interest after a man walked up to the drive-thru and shot a juvenile female worker through the window at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports the shooter fled on foot. The victim was taken to a local hospital where she later was pronounced dead.

The Washoe County Forensic Investigative Services responded to assist in processing the crime scene along with the state patrol, Elko police, Elko County Sheriff’s Office and Elko combined narcotics unit.

Elko police say the person of interest is a man with dark hair, mustache and beard who should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information should call Elko detectives at 775-777-7310.
