'Over a Horn'
Marine Shot to Death in McDonald’s Drive-Thru After Honked Horn Leads to Fistfight: Police

"It's a senseless act to kill somebody over a horn," assistant police Chief Joe DeWees said. "This is one of the most senseless, senseless acts I have ever seen."

A man has been charged with fatally shooting a Marine in the drive-thru of a McDonald's in Bedford, Indiana, according to police and NBC affiliate WTHR.

Justin Lampkins, 25, was in a truck with his friends in line at the fast food restaurant early Saturday morning about 1:19 a.m., police say. The Marine Corps veteran was involved in a fight after “a horn was sounded” in the line and Evan Schaffer,22, got out of his car and punched Lampkins, WTHR reports.

Police say it's unclear who honked the horn.

"The victim shoved the accused back, the accused then presented a handgun," Bedford assistant police Chief Joe DeWees told WTHR.

Police say Schaffer shot Lampkins in the chest before fleeing the scene. Lampkins was taken to Indiana University Health Bedford where he later died, according to a police department Facebook post.

Schaffer was arrested Sunday and charged Monday with murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to a Lawrence County Jail Division official.
