McDonald’s shooting appears to be random


GALLUP N.M. (KRQE) – Gallup police say it appears the deadly shooting of a customer at a Gallup McDonald’s was completely random.

Gerald Wilson, 32, is accused of getting into an argument with customer Christopher Grey-Eagle while he was ordering food inside the fast food restaurant with his family Saturday.

They were at the McDonald’s in the 2300 block of Highway 66 in Gallup.

When Grey-Eagle followed Wilson outside to get his license plate number, witnesses say Wilson shot him.

Police say there is no known history between the victim and the accused shooter, and they’re unaware of any prior arguments between the Grey-Eagle and Wilson. At this time, it’s unclear what the argument was about. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
