Police in Coconut Creek are investigating what was believed to be an accidental shooting at a donut shop Saturday morning.
Officials say the incident took place inside the Dunkin’ Donuts off State Road 7 south of Johnson Road around 8:30 a.m. Initial evidence showed a man inside may have dropped a firearm out of his clothing when hit the ground and went off.
A 55-year-old woman was struck and taken to an area hospital, where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries.The man left the scene in a white four door Mazda.
The man, 38-year-old Randy Barroso, later surrendered to police along with his lawyer, officials said.
Barroso was cooperative and gave a statement to detectives saying the shooting was unintentional, police said. He has a concealed carry permit and does not have a criminal arrest record, police said.
Police arrested Barroso for culpable negligence and he was booked into the Broward County jail on $500 bond.
Dunkin' Donuts issued a statement, saying in part that "the safety and well-being of crew members and customers are our top priority. We are working with our franchisee who is cooperating fully with the police investigating this incident."
