Police arrested Devin Gibbs, 23, of Miami, on Saturday afternoon in connection with the shooting.

The shooting happened on Northwest 80th Street and 27th Avenue.

According to WSVN-Channel 7, a witness reported a dispute at the counter that escalated after an older man yelled at the suspect telling him his order was up.

They were "talking stupid to each other, then [the suspect] took out the gun and said, ‘I’ll kill you right now,' ” Wilder Smith told WSVN.

Ledea Phillip, 65, was shot in the left arm, according to Miami-Dade police.

Phillip was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, but he refused treatment and left, WSVN reported.

Gibbs was charged by police with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon and shooting into a building.

The owner of the restaurant released a statement:

“Our first priority is always the safety of our customers and employees. As this is an active police investigation, we ask that you contact the Miami-Dade County Police Department for additional details.”

The investigation is ongoing.
