Assistant manager killed at McDonald's in Reading

Posted: July 19, 2007

READING, Pa. - An assistant manager at a McDonald's restaurant was shot in the head yesterday while working at the drive-through window, and later died at a hospital, officials said.

Shawnee M. Koch, 40, of Reading, was the second person to be shot dead while working in the drive-through window of the McDonald's restaurant at Ninth and Spring Streets. The previous one was a man killed in 2004.

Police did not immediately identify any suspects or motive for yesterday's shooting, Police Sgt. Guy S. Lehman said. "It doesn't appear there was any dialogue between the two," Lehman said. "She was standing at the cash register, the car pulled up, and 'bam.' "

Koch was shot around 3:30 a.m. and died last evening at Reading Hospital. The dine-in area of the restaurant was closed at the time of the shooting; the drive-through is open 24 hours a day. - AP
