Joseph Cimino began causing a disturbance at 12:53 p.m. at the restaurant at SouthPointe Pavilions because he was unhappy with his food. Christopher Hall, a BNSF Railway senior special agent had been waiting in line outside when he saw people climbing out the drive-thru window after Cimino backed his silver 2018 Dodge pickup through a bank of windows on the restaurant. When the vehicle stopped, Cimino got out and chased customers and employees through the restaurant. Cimino was armed with a stun gun and came at Hall, who shot and killed him.
