A 19-year-old Florida man allegedly shot and killed another man during an argument at a Starbucks drive-thru, police said.
Justin Boersma was arrested early Thursday and charged with first-degree murder and firing a weapon in a public place.
Witnesses said Boersma had cut in front of a truck in the drive-thru in downtown Lake Worth, according to an arrest report obtained by the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
The driver of the truck, identified as 31-year-old Samuel Rossetti, then left his vehicle and banged on Boersma’s Nissan Versa — before ripping off the door handle, the report said.
As Rossetti was heading back to his truck, Boersma left his sedan and allegedly fired three shots.
Boersma’s girlfriend and their infant child were in the car at the time of the confrontation. He told police that he feared for their safety, according to the report.
Rossetti was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Boersma fled the scene in his car, but was later tracked down and arrested.
