According to the sheriff’s office, deputies were called to the McDonald’s at 4640 S. Orange Blossom Trail and Warren opened fire from inside the restaurant, causing deputies to return fire from outside.

Deputies said they attempted to negotiate a peaceful surrender.

“Come out with your hands up,” a negotiator said. “Answer your phone. We want to know if you’re OK.”

Deputies responded to an armed robbery call from the McDonald’s at 4640 S. Orange Blossom Trl. around 10:35 p.m. Saturday and said the suspect opened fire from inside the restaurant, prompting them to return fire from outside.

Deputies eventually took Warren into custody when she exited the restaurant at 4:45 a.m. Sunday, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

No one was injured.

The three deputies involved have been placed on temporary, paid administrative leave, which is protocol, as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigates the shooting.
