FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police in Fort Worth, Texas, say a gunman's pistol jamming averted a shooting inside a McDonald's.
Police say Jestin Joseph entered a McDonald's after 9 p.m. Tuesday night and asked for a drink cup. He then allegedly drew a gun and pointed it at diners, demanding their keys.
The gunman is caught on video approaching one father and son at the counter and pulling the trigger. The gun doesn't fire. He got a stray shot off in the parking lot before police arrived.
Joseph later told KTVT-TV in a jailhouse interview that he just wanted a cup of water -- but, in his words, "somebody said something, and I lost it."
He's charged with five counts of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and is being held on $500,000 bond.
