MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Police confirm that someone was shot inside a McDonald's near Cesar Chavez Drive and Washington on Milwaukee's south side.

The shooting was reported just after 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Customers and employees were working and eating inside the McDonald’s when a shooter opened fire inside the restaurant. Raymundo Anguyano was inside the bathroom when he heard a gun fired.

"I just heard a big gun shot, people screaming and then someone yelled call the cops," Anguyano said. "I was frightened for a moment and then I was like, oh, I got to get out."

Milwaukee Fire tells CBS 58 that the victim has non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital. The age of the victim has not been released by authorities, but early information suggested it was a teenager. Anguyano said he saw a young boy as he was quickly exiting the McDonald’s.
