On Tuesday, McDonald’s general manager, Delonda Walker, reported a tip to police about Howell Donaldson III. She stated that her coworker Donaldson gave her a McDonald’s bag with a gun inside and asked her to hold onto it for a couple days. He also told her that he was planning to leave the state. That day, she approached a police officer inside the restaurant telling him about the event. The officer then called for backup and Donaldson was brought to the station.
