A Taco Bell manager is accused of fatally shooting a colleague after the two got into a dispute at work, authorities in Pennsylvania said.
On Nov. 9, Zairyre Simmons, 23, reprimanded Dorian Carver, 32, at the fast food restaurant in Scott Township and the two started fighting and had to be separated, the Tribune-Review reported, citing a criminal complaint.
“Once separated, Dorian Carver ran out of the restaurant toward the Northwest Mutual building,” police wrote in the criminal complaint, noting Taco Bell surveillance video shows Carver’s supervisor, Simmons, then “ran into the employee-only area, grabbing his coat, and ran after Dorian Carver.”
Simmons followed Carver into the foyer of the Northwestern Mutual office and fatally shot him, Allegheny County Police Superintendent Chris Kearns told the Tribune-Review.
The suspect then fled the scene, police said.

Simmons turned himself in around 7:45 the night of the deadly incident, officials said.
He faces charges of criminal homicide and firearms violations. He was being held in the Allegheny County jail while awaiting arraignment.
