Florida man murders a 22-year-old Burger King worker over drive-thru delay


A Florida man appears to have murdered an Orlando Burger King worker Saturday night after his woman friend’s drive-thru order took too long to complete. Her $40 was returned but she told the young man at the window that her man was coming back.


Kelvis Rodriguez-Tormes, 37, allegedly gunned down Desmond Joshua, 22, in the parking lot of the fast-food restaurant in Orange County.

“You got two seconds before I shoot you,” Rodriguez-Tormes told the victim, who had only been recently hired, before pulling the trigger, WKMG reported, citing deputies.

Rodriguez-Tormes had earlier stormed to the Burger King as the woman said he would. He made a scene over a long wait time at the drive-thru.

The unidentified woman was refunded $40 and told to leave after she got out of her car and screamed she was going to get “her man” to come to the eatery, according to an arrest record.

She drove away but soon returned with Rodriguez-Tormes, who targeted Joshua, demanding the employee fight him.

Rodriguez-Tormes placed Joshua in a headlock before a witness separated the two, records show. But moments later, Rodriguez-Tormes returned from his truck with a gun and shot Joshua, police said.

The employee was taken to an area hospital and pronounced dead. A 22-year-old! Over a delay serving fast food!

Rodriguez-Tormes was charged with murder, destruction of evidence, and weapons possession.



  1. No picture of the perp…I wonder why? Naturally yhis stuff will happen more and more as thugs are taught that violence is acceptable if one is a minority.

  2. where does the writer, M. Dowling, get off sharing his/her opinions with us?

    “A 22 year old! Over a delay serving fast food!”

    and thus the story becomes M. Dowling and his/her overbrimming heart full of virtue,

    also, why do reporters on street thuggery never identify the assailants as ‘democrats’?
