A woman in the United States has been arrested on suspicion of shooting a fast-food worker and injuring others after she was told to leave a McDonald's restaurant.

Gloricia Woody had entered the restaurant in the Oklahoma city despite the dining area being closed because of coronavirus restrictions. When employees asked her to leave, she refused and got into a scuffle with one of them.

The employees eventually forced her outside, but she re-entered the restaurant with a handgun and fired about three rounds.

One worker was shot in the arm, and one suffered a head injury.

Three were taken to a hospital; none of the injures was life-threatening, police said.

Woody was later arrested.

There have been other incidents too of this nature in the country.

In Michigan, a man had wiped his nose on a Dollar Tree worker's shirt after the employee told him he needed to wear a mask.
