Drive-thru worker shot by pellet gun at Arlington Heights restaurant
An employee of an Arlington Heights restaurant suffered minor injuries Saturday night when shot in the face by a pellet gun while working in the business' drive-thru lane, police said.
Arlington Heights police say someone fired multiple shots from a pellet gun at the Portillo's restaurant, 806 W. Dundee Road, about 7:45 p.m. Saturday, striking the worker in the cheek. The employee declined medical attention at the scene, police said.
Another shot shattered a window on the south side of the restaurant and a third dented the bumper of a black 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt, according to police. The shots may have come from a dark-colored Dodge Durango type vehicle parked near the neighboring Kohl's store, police said.
