A Huntsville Taco Bell opened Wednesday morning for the first time since a deadly shooting.

Huntsville Police charged 22-year-old Pete McCullough for the death of his co-worker, Shawn Bone.

Police said it was Monday night when McCullough shot Bone in the parking lot of the Airport Road restaurant after a fight. Bone later died at the hospital.

WAAY-31 spoke to a man who visited the restaurant just hours before the shooting, and said McCullough served him.

"I didn't expect that to happen. But, I mean he kind of had a temper on him that night when he served us," Leotis Allen told WAAY-31.

"I don't know if he was just mad at his job, or something was going on in his life or whatever. I don't know."

WAAY-31 contacted the corporate office for Taco Bell and were told they provided counseling for employees at the restaurant ahead of today's reopening.
