McDonald's employee shot during robbery sues company

HOUSTON – Fallout after a violent robbery at a Houston McDonald's.

On Feb. 8, 2014, gunmen stormed a McDonald's restaurant on Beechnut near Wilcrest, shooting a clerk.

Now, that clerk is suing for $1 million.

Jose Juarez claims the company failed to provide protection from harm, knowing how dangerous the area is.

He also claims McDonald's was "grossly negligent" and that he suffered physical and mental anguish following the shooting.
