While arguing with employees, another man began throwing rocks at the brothers in the Checkers parking lot, police said. When Starnes asked them all to leave, one of the brothers threw a drink at him, police said.

It was then that Starnes fired a bullet from his handgun at the client. No one was injured, police said.

The brothers ran to a nearby motel to wait for the police. Police said Starnes left the restaurant but eventually went to police department headquarters.
