WAUWATOSA, Wis. — Two Wisconsin women are facing charges for a shooting at a Wauwatosa restaurant, after police said they shot an employee in the face.
Bryanna and Breanta Johnson, both 20, were each charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Investigators said the two women were part of a group of four women at a George Webb restaurant on Jan. 30 when the incident happened, WISN reported. According to the criminal complaint, the group was described as “impatient and rude” and argued with two servers after their food was not served fast enough, WISN reported.
When employees asked the women to leave the restaurant, Breanta Johnson left, but according to the criminal complaint, she returned with a gun that she then handed to Bryanna, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. While arguing with employees by the cash register, Breanta is accused of punching one employee and wrestling him to the ground. Bryanna then allegedly shot him in the face, and the women then left the restaurant after Breanta stomped on the employee’s face, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The victim survived but was put in a medically-induced coma, according to documents obtained by WISN. After waking up, the victim told police the women’s order was missing a hamburger, leading to the altercation.
A GoFundMe campaign was started to raise money for the injured restaurant employee, and by Tuesday it had raised more than $19,000. In an update posted to the page, a note that purports to be from the victim’s mother says, “Anthony lost his teeth and a major portion of his tongue on the right side of his face. He has bullet fragments in his sinuses and lungs and the bullet severed a major artery in his neck and remains in his neck. He is a fighter! And refused to remain in the trauma unit/hospital and is home with family.”
Police told WISN a third woman from the group is in jail awaiting charges, and the fourth is expected to have charges filed against her soon.
